Food and Drink

Living in a city that gets more than double the number of tourists as residents yearly, there’s a big industry that caters to tourists. The number one question I get is where to eat in Marrakech. It makes sense. Whenever we’re out we see hundreds of them walking, eating, and enjoying the city. But, sometimes – ok lots of times – we cringe when we see what they’re eating. This post isn’t meant to say scare people – don’t be.

We had some great food in Marrakesh. Food in most Moroccan restaurants tends to be the same, tagine, couscous, harira and pastilla, but many places also did pizza and other international foods too.
 
All meals we had came with a basked of Moroccan bread and olives. Seriously, we ate so many olives in a week, I don’t want to see another olive for a long time.

Stock Up On Spices
Stock Up On Spices

The best spices to buy in Morocco are the spices that you will use – don't purchase things just because it sounds appealing if you aren't likely to use it. Some of my favorite spices include; cumin, cinnamon, paprika, and white pepper.

There is no restriction on bringing dried spices back to the U.S., as long as your haul doesn't include any citrus, citrus leaves or seeds. To enjoy your spices at their peak, make sure to use them within six months.

Upon a visit to any souk, you will notice stall after stall of the most brilliantly colored bins of spices. Spices are the defining point to any authentic Moroccan meal and are also known to be used for their medicinal value. Be rest assured that it is a set group of specific spices. Although some of Morocco’s spices are imported from the East, most are indigenous to Morocco.

Vist Jemaa El Fnaa
Vist Jemaa El Fnaa

Jemaa el-Fnaa also Jemaa el-Fna, is a square and market place in Marrakesh's medina quarter (old city). It remains the main square of Marrakesh, used by locals and tourists.

Jamaâ El Fna is a destination for all magic, and tells its storytellers, dancers, water sellers and snake charmers, the history of Morocco from yesterday and today while subduing its visitors by Its charm which begins in the morning and finds its height only in the evening. The medieval Moroccan chronicles written between the 11th and the 14th centuries refer to a Rahba al-Ksar. 

Public punishments had been imposed publicly since the 12th century. The palace in question and certainly the Ksar al-Hajar built at the end of the 11th century by the Almoravids and whose ruins remain at the foot of the Koutoubia

Morocco, an ancient North African nation preserving a colorful history that spans over 1,000 years, is also one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, having received approximately 5.1 million visitors in the first half of 2018.

The kingdom is famous for its host of magnificent buildings, steeped in a fine blend of Andalusian, Berber-Arab and French influences; and Marrakesh, it’s fourth-largest city, is no exception, from its stunning Menara Airport (which has been dubbed the most beautiful in the world), to its many traditionally-built hotels, museums, and other attractions.

Although now in ruins, it is still easy to imagine how impressive the former palace would have been in the past. Built to be one of the finest palaces of its time, the now-bare walls of Badi Palace were once adorned with decadent ornamentation
