You can’t go to Morocco without going to Marrakech… It is not just a matter of luck that the city gave its name to Morocco. Although it is not now the capital and although its prestige has experienced highs and lows over the last millennium as the reigning dynasties came and went, the “Pearl of the South” has lost any of its attention.

700,000 people live in Marrakesh, including 250,000 in the medina. Surrounded by ramparts in an adobe built by the Almoravid Ali ibn Yusuf in 1132, the wall is five meters high and two meters thick. It stretches around 12 kilometers. The gigantic walls did not however prevent the Almohads from seizing the town in 1147. After having exterminated the last Almoravids and having razed nearly all the monuments, these partisans of hard-line Islam built palaces and religious edifices in their turn. The famous Koutoubia Mosque, the symbol of Marrakesh, was built during this period on the ruins of the Almoravid palace.

The city’s irrigation system was perfected to feed the palm grove and the large gardens. In 1269, the nomadic Marinid clan seized Marrakesh from the last of the Almoravids. The arrival of the Marinid dynasty sounded the beginning of the decline of Marrakesh, which lost its status as capital to its rival, Fes. The town then fell into a kind of lethargy. At the beginning of the 16th century, a new dynasty ruled in Morocco. The Saadite sultan, Mohammed El Mahdi, returned the Kingdom’s capital to Marrakesh. The town underwent a renaissance and rapidly entered its golden era. The fabulous riches amassed by the sultans made it possible to embellish Marrakech. Ruined monuments were restored and sumptuous palaces built.

Marrakesh was to lose its status as capital once more. At the beginning of the 20th century, the town experienced a few years of civil war. In 1912 the introduction of the French protectorate in Morocco ended the anarchy. At the same time, the new town was born. It is in the main made up of the district of Gueliz. This new town attracted the favors of the Moroccan bourgeoisie who preferred it to the medina

Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia.
