The most Instagrammable places in Marrakech!
Tourism is constantly evolving, especially travellers. Before, many were interested in the main attractions, but today even more people are searching for the most photogenic places. With the advent of social media, “photo tourism” has become increasingly popular. Morocco and Marrakech are two favourite destinations for Instagramers because of their bright colours, distinctive shops and elegant buildings. Let’s see what are the most Instagrammable places in the vibrant city of Marrakech.
Jamaa el Fna
The Jamaa el Fna is the main square located in the heart of Marrakech. Frantic and lively at any time of day, it is one of the most beautiful places to photograph. The stalls that fill the square during the day are full of typical Moroccan scents, colours and flavours. In the evening, the square comes alive with dancers and storytellers.
One of Morocco’s most famous Souks is that of Marrakech. Beautiful Bazaars wind through the narrow streets of the district. A magical place where tourists can enjoy haggling with merchants for an affordable price. Taking a photo in front of a Bazaar can prove to be a simple but very original shot.
A green oasis within the city, Le Jardin Majorelle is a botanical garden complex opened in 1931. With the strong green colours of the plants and the blue of the buildings, your photos will be vibrant and exotic.
Palais de la Bahia
The Palais de la Bahia is a sumptuous palace that occupies as much as 8 hectares and represents Morocco’s traditional architecture at its best. The 150 rooms inside are decorated with marble, cedar and beech wood and zellige stucco.
The Mamounia Palace
It is undoubtedly one of the most photographed hotels in Marrakech, but also one of the most expensive! Fortunately, it is possible to enter even for just a visit and a few shots without having to stay overnight.
Discovered in 1917, the Saadian Tombs date back to the time of Sultan Aḥmad al-Manṣūr al-Dahabī. With their distinctive architecture and colourful decorations, they will make the perfect backdrop for your photographs.
Dar si said
The Dar si said, or also called the “museum of Moroccan art,” is the museum that exhibits the largest number of works in Morocco. Its rooms decorated with majolica tiles make it a very photogenic space.
Koutoubia Mosque is the most important religious building in the city of Marrakech. Particularly notable is the Minaret, finished in 1196, adorned with fine and elegant decorations.
This district inside the medina regroups all of Marrakech’s dyers. The colours and patterns of the fabrics are the real stars of these streets.
Gates of Marrakech
On the streets of Marrakech you can meet many distinctive and colourful doors. The doors are often made of wood and decorated with fine inlays and stucco.
Le jardin Secret
The recently opened botanical garden in the heart of the medina is a great place to relax and take a few photos. Much less crowded and well-known than the famous Majorelle Gardens, it is nonetheless a magical place.
