Marrakesh, known as the “ochre city,” is Morocco’s leading tourist destination. With its 1,300,000 inhabitants, it is the fourth most populous city in the country. Endowed with an impressive cultural heritage with countless monuments and museums, the city is divided into two distinct parts: the new city and the medina or historic city, classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1985.
