Walking in Marrakech

To see Which is my favorite place in Morocco? Maybe Fes? Maybe Marrakech?
​I don’t decide. I appreciated both of them. In different colors, in different shapes, history and social authenticity merge well with modernity, allowing excellent vacations.

Djemaa El Fna – ​Always on

Marrakech

The heart of Morocco beats in Djemaa el-Fna, where everything happens, and everything has a price, in a non-stop touristy happening.

The size of the square, very uncommon in old Moroccan quarters may explain this intense merging of business and popular arts.

The square is a living stage, performing for tourist everything that may lead to a deal.

Medina – ​Not impressive​

I must confess that I was not impressed by the Medina, in Marrakesh.

After visiting Tetouan, Tangier, Casablanca, and specially Fes, this Medina seemed a common commercial quarter, without the strong sensations lived in Fes.

Of course, for a first contact with Moroccan way of life the sensation may be totally different, but… this was what I felt.
