The Marrakech Souks contain an astonishing variety of life.  Just a 15 minute walk though the Souks near to Riad Papillon and Riad Cinnamon in the central medina gives a window onto an ancient culture.

Start in a Caravanserai ( a camel motel!) recently restored using UNESCO funding (Marrakech is a UNESCO world heritage site), pass by the local bakery (sample fresh bread if you wish), walk on into the souks, see the clever slatted roof above (Berber air conditioning!), pass the slipper sellers, see crafts men at work making musical instruments, peep in the shops selling expert lemon wood marketry, and on to the dyers souk.

Riad Marrakech Accommodation allows you to explore all this at your leisure and pop back to your personal oasis whenever you wish. Make your reservation today.

What better place to wake before dawn than the ancient City of Marrakech. The gallery below traces an early morning stroll, waking in our luxury Riad Cinnamon, taking a hot shower in the Casablanca suite, moving swiftly up to the roof terrace to catch the sunrise behind the Ben Yussef mosque and the Atlas Mountains then out through the silent derb, peeping up at the mosque again, seeing the ancient koubba monument without its usual throng of tourists, on

past the marrakech museum, throught the fruit market where vendors are setting up their stalls. into the Rabha kedima square, past the carpet auction venue and the normally bustling cafe des epices, through the silent souks to the main square and finally on to the Koutoubia mosque.
