The Central area of the Marrakech Medina around the Ben Yussef Mosque is the ‘museum quarter’ with a great collection of museums and historic attractions.

The oldest building in Marrakech, the Almoravid Kouba is open to the public and features  sone of the most remarkable architectural decoration in the whole of the islamic world.

The largest and most important museum in town is the Musee de Marrakech (Marrakech Museum) which houses a permanent collection of art as well as cultural artefacts including ancient carpets and Berber wedding jewellery.

Adjacent is the Ben Yussef Maddrassa an extraordinary and atmospheric building which was an active Koranic School until relatively recently. In our view this is the most interesting of all the historic monuments in Marrakech.

Then, in the same street, there is the Dar Bellarj foundation which is currently showcasing ‘perfumes of morocco’.

A couple of minutes to the North is the outstanding ‘Maison de la Photographie‘ which disays a collection of historic collection of photos giving a window into the history and traditions of he Berber tribes.  There is also a video room with rare footage.
