        Description

        Our amazing photography weekend city break to Marrakech in the heart of Morocco will surely give you some spectacular images to take back with you after the adventure. You will have your cameras to hand as we explore the souks, watch charming snake artisans at work on the streets, explore the buildings and there authentic Islamic architecture and take time out to relax in the beautiful shaded gardens.

        Our stay will be within Medina, the ancient walled part of the city Marrakech, where from the rooftops with the somewhat snow capped the Atlas Mountains in view, we will be able to appreciate the unique position as the meeting point from sub-Saharan Africa and Arabic North Africa.

        Marrakech What to expect on your travels

        Narrow alleyways with souk – lining the streets offering brightly coloured spices, buildings and artisans at work in the world-famous Djemaa Sl-Fna with its carnival atmosphere

        Koutoubia Mosque and Gardens – Between Koutoubia Mosque and its gardens, you’ll find great angles and stunning backdrops for photos. During the Call to Prayer, getting pictures of the faithful, coming in from Jemaa el Fna is particularly interesting.

        Marrakech Royal Palace – Though you won’t be able to tour the inside. The exterior makes for good photos with its well-manicured gardens and urban and mountainous backdrops.

        Jardins de l’Agdal – Resurrect your spirits in this lively garden. The two reflecting pools make for good shots. The gardens have initially been an orchard constructed by And al-Mu’min of the Almohad dynasty in the 12th century. Renovated by the Saadi dynasty and expanded during the reign of Moulay Abderrahmane in the 19th century. He then ordered the gardens to be surrounded by pine walls.

        Medina Neighborhood – This is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Marrakech. Meander through the streets to find potential photos of many types. Here you’ll be able to capture the spirit of Marrakech on camera at all hours. Within about a 1/2 mile radius, you’ll get excellent shots of various types from locals to buildings.
