Medina Bikes Marrakech is a project which launched in response to discussions during Cop 22 environmental festival (Conference Of The Parties 22nd Edition) in 2016.

This bike-sharing system was launched in partnership with the Ministry for the Environment of the Kingdom of Morocco. Tourists,visitors and residents are encouraged to explore Marrakech by bicycle. This concept benefits not only the personal health of the rider, but also the air quality of Marrakech.
With so many people using motorcycles and mopeds, the levels of pollution inside the medina are at a high; all efforts to impact this attitude towards inter-city travel are certainly not in vain.

The bicycles are available 24/7, 365 days a year. Just pop in your bank or credit card and away you go!

Tariffs start from just 50 dirhams per day, with a deal of 150 dirhams for 7 days. There are even low-cost tariffs available for a monthly or yearly bicycle hire; so for those living or studying in Marrakech, Medina bikes can be a fantastic solution for transport without a carbon footprint.

To hire a bike, you must sign up/register using your mobile phone, tablet or desktop (this is a very quick 5 minute process). Once you have registered, you will be sent a code by email or text. You can enter your code or scan your bank card to unlock your bike.

What about when you want to stop and shop? Don’t worry, there’s a feature for that too. There is so much to see in Marrakech, so you will definitely want to make plenty of stops on your ride – when you are ready for a rest you can use the integrated cable lock for short stops. Be aware that you are still being charged for the times when you’re not riding, so where possible it is preferable that you return your bike to a nearby “dock” when you are ready to explore on foot.

When you’re ready to return your bike, just place it back in any of the many “docks” located around the Medina and New Town of Marrakech. For more details, you can check the website. Rumour has it, you’ll soon be able to find the dock locations on our free Marrakech Riad Map & Guide App.

Anyone who has visited Marrakech will probably tell stories of the cats and kittens that inhabit the streets of the ancient medina. Every derb (street) you walk down you see family of cats resting in the shade, a cute kitten lapping up some water or a lone cat sneaking around the corner. Even some of Marrakech’s main tourist attractions – such as El Badi Palace, Saadian Tombs or the Menara Gardens – are inhabited by lots of furry felines.

However, unlike our household friends, the cats of Marrakech are street cats. Although they are fed, watered and cared for by the locals, yet don’t entirely exist as pets in the way we consider cats. (Indeed, our riad staff often give the street cats water and leftovers!!) In this way the Marrakech cats are a lot more independent and more carefree than the cats we know and love.

Just as everywhere in the world, the cats and kittens of Marrakech divide opinion. Some love the cats and find them cute and adorable, while others aren’t so interested and would rather keep their distance. This rule applied for both tourists and locals alike. Yet, due to the independent nature of the cats of Marrakech are not used to attention and will probably shy away from a loving hand. Similarly, if cats aren’t your cup of tea – or rather, your cup of mint tea – then it is quite easy to avoid them.

Ultimately, whatever you think about them, the cats and kittens of the medina are genuine Marrakchi locals and are just one of the many things which makes the red city such a unique and interesting place to visit. Why not book at stay at our luxury riads today?

Across the Marrakech Medina, almost on every derb (street), there are many small stalls selling a variety of food from home cooked bread to dried fruit. Indeed, each stall specialises in a different food-type and many sell fresh fruit sourced from the local Marrakech area. It is undoubtedly true that the summer months (July to September) the Fig de Barbarie is the most popular fruit among locals. However during the winter months, when the famous fig is out of season, the Mandarin Orange reigns as the most popular fruit snack.

The mandarin is tender and is damaged easily by cold and can only be grown in tropical and subtropical areas. This is why the mandarin, and indeed most fruits, suits the warm Marrakech climate perfectly. The mandarin is part of the orange family, yet it remains smaller and easier to peel than a normal orange, making it the perfect street snack. Like all members of the citrus family, they provide a boost of vitamins, minerals and natural sugars, giving a healthy natural energy to fuel your walk around the Medina.

These small fruit stalls are used by locals and tourists alike and we highly recommend you take a visit. The local stall sellers are always friendly and happy to help you make your purchase and the fruit is always fresh, healthy and safe to eat.

Although you can also find fresh fruit on every street in the red city, our luxury Riads also serve fresh fruit at breakfast and for snacks during the day upon request. So, why not book a stay at one of our traditional Moroccan accommodation today?

Bab Er-Robb, which translates as ‘Lord’s Gate’, was used for controlling spirits; nowadays it functions as the main entrance into the Medina. Whereas Bab Er-Robb is perhaps not as visually stunning as it’s close neighbor, Bab Agnaou, it is possible to find a beautiful rose garden and comfortable shady benches less than 10 metres from the gate, along the ramparts.

As the most southern of Marrakech’s 19 gates, the Bab Er-Robb often functions as passageway to the roads that lead out of Marrakech; indeed, less than 200m away from the gate itself you can find the Grand Taxis who offer affordable travel to the Atlas Mountains or to the coastal town of Essaouira. If you are looking to take a Grand Taxi on a day trip or on a long excursion, our Riad staff will be able to give you guidance.

While it’s nearby neighbor Bab er-Robb acts as the official entrance to the city, Bab Agnaou functions as the main entrance to the Kasbah which is the site of the El Badi Palace, the Saadian Tombs and the El Mansouria (the kasbah mosque). Bab Aganou is perhaps the most unique of Marrakech’s nineteen gates and it’s original function, as a royal entrance, is perhaps the reason for this. The corner-pieces are decorated with floral decorations extending around a shell is simply exquisite and this ornamentation is framed by three panels and on these panels is an inscription from the Quran.

Built in the 12th century in the time of the Almohad dynasty, Bab Aganou was originally built in blue-grey stone from Gueliz. Nowadays it has become nearly as red as the ramparts that surround it, thanks to the desert sand brought by the wind.

The Bab Agnaou also marks the finishing point of our ‘Woodworking’ Medina walk available for free on our Marrakech Riad app. If you would like to find out more about the Woodworking walk or any of other Medina walks then our Riad staff would be more than happy to help.

Overshadowing the central square of Marrakech is the stunning sight of the Medina, or Argana Mosque.

Hugging the North-Western reaches of the Jemaa el-Fnaa aside of Souk Jdid, the Argana Mosque has no Qur’anic school and exists solely as a space of prayer, acting as a key religious location for local Marrakshi, especially during the holy month of Ramadan.

As the sun sets over the red city and the smoke from the Jemaa el-Fnaa food markets forms a sultry haze over the square, the sight of the Argana Mosque can still always be seen as it’s highest reaches soar over the movement below.

Our luxury riads are but a few minutes walk from the thriving centre of activity that is Jemaa el-Fnaa, explore the magic of Marrakech for yourself today.

If you step out of the doors of the Riad Cinnamon and stroll past the Ben Youssef mosque, you will encounter the numerous scarf stalls that line the walls in the direction of Souk Semmarine.
The stalls showcase kaleidoscopic arrangements of vivid colours and patterning,
the likes of which can not be found in the city market districts of Europe. Most of the scarves are locally sourced from near Marrakech, however some salesmen choose to import from Turkey, Iran and Pakistan.
And as well as being a fashion accessory, scarves offer protection against the often harsh conditions of the Moroccan climate and have been a fundamental aspect of Islamic identity in Morocco for many hundreds of years.
The scarves on offer in this district of Marrakech are all of the highest calibre of quality and are very reasonably priced, ranging from prices of 20 (£1.47) to 120 (£8.83) Moroccan dirhams depending on the size and design.
An authentic Moroccan scarf is an accessory that’s truly unique to this corner of the globe, explore the magic of Marrakech through the comfort of a luxury Riad Hotel for yourself, and take a piece of Morocco home with you.

Snugly located by the main entrance of the Souk Ouarzazi and the Bab Ftouh arch is the Marrakech market of mirrors. Built like a miniature square, the tiny shops of the mirror market hug the corners around it’s centre in close proximity, giving the space a warm and intimate feel.

The mirrors found here takes on a huge variety of different forms and styles. You’ll find craftsmen using ancient Berber techniques to hand-chisel frames out of wood, alongside contemporary Moroccan-Arabic designs that favour tin, silver and copper as materials which are all shaped and decorated by hand. 

The mirrors that deck the halls of our luxury Riad Hotels, as well as many others throughout the red city of Marrakech are all sourced from the mirror markets and others like it.

The skills used to create the mirrors of the red cities markets are wrought with secrecy and passed down through families, generation after generation. So you can be sure that a purchase made here for a loved one back home will be truly unique in it’s nature.

Explore the magic of the Marrakech mirror market through the comfort of a luxury Riad Hotel today.

Scattered throughout the Medina you will see the many mint salesmen going about their daily trade. Mint is an absolutely key staple in Moroccan society, used in marinades for a variety of dishes and of course in the traditional mint tea.

And the central hub of the red city is of course no exception to this. In the north-western area of Jemaa al-Fnaa on the tip of Rue de la Koutoubia you will discover a congregation of salesmen all specialising in the mint trade.

Mint sellers

For around 50 Dirhams (£3.73) you can pick up a bag of dry Moroccan mint leaves to take back home with you. This is a commodity that’s truly unique to this corner of the world and there are a myriad of different culinary uses for this intensely flavoursome ingredient.


However after trying a couple of glasses of Moroccan mint tea for yourself, the only thing you’ll be wanting to do with it is to use it to make your own! Read our mint recipe here for all the relevant information.

If you speak to anyone who has visited Marrakech, you can be sure that they will mention the red city’s famous Souk District. Located in the very heart of the Medina, just north of Jemaa al-Fnaa and a five minute stroll from Riad Spice, Cinnamon, Papillon and Riad Star.

Souk shop

The souks of Marrakech are the largest you can find from all four corners of Morocco and it’s astonishing to think that for a thousand years the district has acted as a thriving central hub for trade and commerce without very little changing at all. Though allowances have been made for modern tastes, many of the traditional commodities can still easily be bought from the winding alleys of the Souks.

As you first walk into Souk Semmarine (the central channel of the district)  the sensory overload of sight, smell and sound makes it difficult to focus on any one thing at once! As you come to your senses you will find yourself walking past stalls and shops specialising in pottery, pâtisseries, textiles, spices, carpets, jewellery and more. All of which are dimly lit under the covered boards that shield the alley from the intense Moroccan sun, giving Souk Semmarine a truly magical and mysterious feel.

souk sweets

As the night sun begins to set, the atmosphere in the red city’s central square, Jemaa al-Fnaa, begins to change, so does it in the souks. Indeed, in our opinion, early evening is the best time to visit both the Souks and the Jemaa al-Fnaa square. Look out for stalls specialising in Moroccan lamps, the craftsmanship that goes into designing the lamps is an art that is usually passed down through families, generation after generation. In the evening, the dim glow the lanterns emit light up the darkened corners of the Souks and it’s a common sight to see tourists and Marrakshi locals drawn into the lamps stalls like moths to a flame.

Souk lamps

Trips to the Souk district will be one of the highlights of your adventure in Marrakech. They stay open from 9am to 9pm so it’s advisable to visit in the cool of the morning or as the sun starts to set if you are finding it hard to acclimatise to the high temperatures of Morocco. Finally, remember haggling is key! The art of haggling is integral to the culture of transactions that take place in the Souks and stall owners will be disappointed if you don’t try!

Opening Times: 9-10am til 7pm

From the red city of Marrakech to the sleepy oasis of Essaouira, one thing you will not miss on your visit to Morocco is the intense presence of ‘Gnawa’ music. From single musicians to  whole troops practice this art form and you will instantly be able to recognise Gnawa in the streets by the distinctive beat of iron rattles or ‘karkabas’.

There is in fact a world of mystery encompassing the exact origin of this revered and celebrated art form. Moroccans agree that it originally crept into the country from the southern reaches of the Sahara deserts however there is much dispute as to how and who originally brought this unique style of music into Morocco.

This Gnawa musicias name is Omar and ever day as I walk from the Riad Dar Habiba down Rue Riad Zitoun el Kdim he is sat just outside the central square of Jemaa al-Fnaa, filling in the air with the steady cadence of Gnawa music through his 3 stringed bass plucked lute, called a ‘hajhuj’.

Although it’s uncertain as to how Gnawa came to arrive in Morocco, what’s important is that it did and that it spread to the four corners of the country like wildfire. Gnawa is so embedded in Morocco that some with a keen ear for this art form can tell the origin of a musician by the slight variations in style and performance in the same was a varying Darija Arabic accent.

Gnawa music is perhaps one of the most remarkable and fascinating arts that I have come into contact with here in Morocco. When you discover Marrakech for yourself you will see how perfectly synchronised this unique sound is with the beat of the red city.

Located in the Mellah district of the Marrakech Medina along Rue Bahia Bab Mellah is Bahia Palace (Palais de la Bahia), just south of the cities central square and a five minute stroll from the Riad Dar Habiba.

The Bahia Palace and the stunning sets of tranquil gardens enclosed behind its walls are within easy walking distance from Djemaa El Fnaa and have thus become a hugely popular destination for visitors of the red city.

After speaking with some of the helpful tour guides within the Palace, I learn that the Bahia was constructed in the late 19th Century between 1894 and 1900 by the commission of a father and his son, Si Moussa and Ba Amed. Both were Viziers to Moroccan sultans and their intentions were to build a Palace that would outshine any other Palace of its time.

Indeed some may argue that they succeeded. Trickling fountains, fresh orange trees and shaded gardens are scattered throughout the walled pavilions of the Palace, allowing the name ‘Bahia’ meaning “brilliance” to live up to it’s standards.

Alongside the pastoral beauty within the Bahia palace, the level of craftsmanship that decorates the floors and ceilings of the complex is truly remarkable. Intricately crafted poly-chrome mosaic’s known as Zellij (or zellige) deck the ceilings of the rooms of the Bahia Palace, of which many were designed to house the wives of the ruling Sultan.

Bahia craftsmanship

The Bahia Palace showcases a beautiful fusion between traditional Moroccan and Islamic architectural design and for only 10 Dirhams entry you can gain a fascinating glimpse into to history of the kingdom of Morocco. Make sure you stop by to admire this truly astounding landmark just a short walk from our Riad hotel Dar Habiba.


Nestled alongside Boulevard Al Yarmouk is the Marrakech Medina’s cyber park. If you are looking to seek some shade from the Moroccan sun or need to send a quick e-mail while you are on the move in the city, then the cyber park is the ideal location to spend an hour and recharge your batteries.

Cyber park Marrakech

The Medina’s cyber park and it’s internet facilities are completely free to the public and the collections of fountains, orange trees and even some interesting viewpoints of the Medina’s ramparts make this shady oasis a great place to relax for those seeking respite from the bustle of the city.

Marrakech is a ancient city which has acted as a hub of trade and commerce for nearly a thousand years. One of the most fascinating aspects of the cities rich and diverse history that is well worth your attention is it’s relationship with the arts and crafts.

From leather, textiles and especially metal, craftsmen and apprentices in Marrakech to this day use the skills that have been passed down generation through to generation in the various trades.

This is certainly true in the case of the ‘Tankkacht’, or copper workers of the Marrakech Medina. On or way down Rue Riad Zitoun Kdim, five minutes from Riad Dar Habiba and the cities central square, resident video blogger Jamie Horton and I encountered this Taankacht, whose name is Soufiane.

Soufiane explains that through years of practicing this traditional craft, he is able to inscribe any kind of pattern, lettering or symbol onto various designs of copper with his hand tools. Soufiane goes on to explain to me that to get to his level of expertise, it took him 3 years to learn to inscribe in Arabic, then a further 3 years to master the technique in the Latin languages.

After only 5 minutes Soufiane had inscribed my name into both English and Arabic onto a copper design shaped into the hand of Fatima. For only 30 Dirhams (2.35) this is the ideal souvenir which will allow you to take a piece of Morocco back home with you!

Anyone who has experienced Marrakech will know that unlike most Europeans, the Marrakshi are on the move 24/7. Be it by donkey, horse, motorbike or car you will see the local inhabitants speeding through the ancient city all through the day and night.

This does indeed give Marrakech a unique atmosphere. At times it feels as though the city is so completely charged with sound, smell, movement and energy that it almost seems fit to explode.

Taking this into account however it’s good to remember that Marrakech uses a right hand system in its winding alleyways and roads. Keeping this in mind will help you avoid a bump from a passing bicycle or mope.

So although you may want to have your headphones in to keep up with your Darija Arabic pod-casts, it’s probably better to have all your senses in-tune with the beat of the city in order to prevent a needless scrape!


Walking down the street of Souikat market in the North West of the Marrakech Medina you see two men pulling an unwilling full sized ram towards you, it passes and you think nothing of it. An hour later, in the distance pipes and drums begin to play which gradually crescendo and from a distance you see a large procession of 50 people, fronted by a band dressed in traditional Marakkechi robes marching to an enchanting beat.

Engagement procession outside the charity project Henna Cafe

Representing the second step of a Moroccan engagement, lavish gifts are given from the groom’s family to the brides, along with the highly significant act of slaughtering a sheep, reminding Muslims of the sacrality that is life.

Milk, dates, henna and sugar are given to the female from the male in a earlier step of the engagement each representing a specific necessary characteristic of a long and healthy marriage.

With the wedding and subsequent celebrations sometimes lasting in excessof 25 days, Morocco has a vibrant charm but with roots very much grounded in humble traditions.

As a beautiful setting for an engagement, wedding or anniversary, riad Dar Habiba, with a private Hammam, offers you warming lasting memories in the heart of the Marrakech Medina. Just one of our outstanding Riads in Marrakech

The old town of Marrakech is known as the Medina, set inside an ancient city wall and in many ways little changed since the middle ages. The perfect place for your Marrakech medina stay is a restored Riad hotel, constructed around a courtyard garden.
