Morocco's entertainment capital is, without a doubt, Marrakech. Djemaa el Fna, the city's central plaza, is where Marrakech's performers-including acrobats, drummers, dancers, pipe musicians, comedians, and storytellers—conduct their performances. There are various dining options, including the Djemaa el Fna food stalls, many inexpensive cafe-restaurants, and several up-market palace restaurants that offer Morocco's traditional cuisine at its best.
Marrakech is a city in western Morocco that has a rich history dating back to the 11th century. It was founded by the Almoravids as a military fortress and served as the capital of the Kingdom of Morocco during the 12th and 13th centuries. The city's old town, known as the Medina, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to many historical landmarks, including the Koutoubia Mosque, the Bahia Palace, and the Saadian Tombs. The Medina is also home to many traditional markets, such as the souks, where visitors can find a variety of goods such as textiles, pottery, and spices. Another popular tourist attraction in Marrakech is the Jardin Majorelle, a botanical garden designed by French painter Jacques Majorelle in the 1920s. The garden is now owned by the fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent and is open to the public.
