This famous landmark dominates the local skyline and can easily be spotted from all of Marrakech. Another jewel of Marrakech is the Koranic school that was built around 1570; the Medrasa Ben Youssef is the biggest medersa in the whole of the Maghreb. Hidden away behind high walls are the Saadian Tombs. The Mausoleum displays a very high level of decoration, using traditional stucco and Granada-style carving, typical of classical Moroccan buildings. The Bahia Palace is a masterpiece of domestic architecture which gives a good idea of how the privileged lived in the 19th century in the Imperial city. The use of marble, stucco and mosaics predominates in the apartments, opening on to courtyards filled with fountains and plant life. Dar Si Said is one of the most beautiful palaces, now home to the museum of Moroccan Arts and Crafts. Inside are stunning collections of traditional woven carpets and Berber silver jewelry.
    Half day sightseeing - You will enjoy the gardens of Marrakech, starting by the Menara gardens that were built in the 12 century and surrounded by orchards and olive groves. The intention of the basin was to irrigate the surrounding gardens and orchards using a sophisticated system called Qanat. The basin is supplied with water thanks to an old hydraulic system which conveys water from the mountains located at 30 km approximately away from Marrakech. Continue to discover the Majorelle gardens, created by French painter Jacques Majorelle in 1924 and later opened to the public in 1947. Purchased after his death, by designer Yves Saint Laurent who established a trust to protect the future existence of the garden. He founded a small Islamic art museum located on the premises in a bright blue house, which was once the painting studio of Majorelle.
