Marrakech (nicknamed “the red city”), is a city located in central Morocco at the foot of the High Atlas Mountains (4165 m).
Marrakech, founded in the year 1071, was the capital of Morocco during the 11th, 12th, 13th, 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. It is now the third urban agglomeration of Morocco, with 1.3 million inhabitants.

The city is a luxury tourism destination, thanks to its medina, its very high-class hotels and residences, its social and folkloric atmosphere, and thanks to the beautiful natural regions that surround it especially (It is the starting point of many excursions, to the high Atlas mountains and to the desert of southern Morocco).
