Marrakech is an Islamic city and famous for its mosques and we will visit koutoubia mosque (69 meters high and 12.8 meter long) which is a magnificent place. It has a great similarity with Giralda of Seville .
The building was built on Almohad style , it has six rooms above each others and lead to a balcony.
Also the four domes give it a very beautiful shape .
Al Bahia palace
The second place to visit is Al Bahia palace which was built between 1894 and 1900 in al Alawy style and it needed about 1000 workers to finish its building, and this gives you an idea about how incredible and fantastic it is.
This palace was built for Ahmed Ibn Moussa (B Ahmed)and shows how the way wealthy people live in that period.
Although not all the rooms are opened but only just the ones which are favorable for the sultan but they are enough for you to know a lot about this building, by watching the adorned walls and wood ceiling.
And by sitting in the courtyard which is also very beautiful and covered with marble and have many fountains.
So it is a good place for you to take a lot of photos.
