is one of the most iconic settings in the world, displaying rich vibrant colours, fresh food & spectacular views.
This large square at the entry to the medina is the center of Marrakesh life. The meaning of the name amaa means "congregation" in Arabic which refers to the gathering of people in the market. During the day it is predominantly occupied by orange juice stalls, water sellers with traditional leather water-bags and brass cups, youths with chained Barbary apes and snake charmers.
As the day progresses, the entertainment on offer changes: the snake charmers depart, and late in the day the square becomes more crowded. The place fills up little by little until it becomes a carnival all of storytellers, Acrobats, musicians and artists.

La Jardin Secret
is a long and rich heritage site only restored to its full glory in late 2016. The beautiful garden & rich colors make this a site not to be missed.
La Jardin Secret has a long history of ownership and disarray. The building dates back to the middle of the 16th century when the building was left in decline due to the saadian dynasty coming to an end. In 1912, al-Hajj Muhammed Loukrissi moved into the palace on the grounds of the La Jardin until 1934, the year of his death.
The property then ceased all action and was once again left to fall into a state of disrepair. It was only until 2008 that the Le Jardin commenced restoration & 2016 did it flourish into a world renound attraction that was open for the public.
