The newly refurbished Berber museum is a fantastic resource cataloguing the essentials of domestic life, clothing and jewellery with all regions of Morocco represented. The exhibits are beautifully displayed and lit and have rightly received rave reviews. Many thanks to Sarah Corbett
for the image above. Sarah is a renowned specialist in Berber Silver and runs tours for jewellery collectors in our Marrakech Riads. This small ‘must see’ museum is located within the Majorelle Gardens in the Marrakech New town of Guiliez and the exterior is painted distinctive Majorelle blue.
The wittily named Fnaque Berbere, or Berber bookshop is a Marrakech institution which has recently had a facelift.
This great little bookshop used to be a ramshackle kiosk on a prominent corner of the Rue Mouassine which runs up from the Jemma al Fna Square North toward the Central Medina. During 2011 it was demolished and completely rebuilt with a smart new exterior. Inside is the same fantastic collection of books illustrating all that is best about Moroccan interiors and design.
Stay in one of our Marrakech Riads and our wonderful staff will help you to make the most of your stay in the old town Medina.
