The Marrakech Tanneries

The famous Marrakech Tanneries are located to the East of the Medina and offer a fascinating opportunity to see an ancient craft alive and well in the twenty first century. The tanners use their skill and judgement to progress animal hides through a succession of processes essentially unchanged from those used by their forbears centuries ago.  Many of the tanneries offer guided tours and there are opportunities to purchase finished leather goods at reasonable prices.

Reserve accommodation today at our outstanding Marrakech Riads which provide the perfect base from which to explore the centuries old Medina.
