Away from the Marrakech crowd

Amazingly there are quiet corners to be found even close to the centre of Marrakech. This view of the Koutoubia Mosque was taken from the the cool and calm of the orange grove in the adjacent Jardin De La Koutoubia.

Bahia Palace, Marrakech

A couple of years ago we spent a wonderful long weekend discovering the delights of Marrakech.  Bahia Palace, with it’s exquisite architecture and decorations was an oasis of peace away from the madness of Jamaa El-Fnaa (which we loved, by the way). It is most definitely worth a visit. These are just a few examples of its gorgeousness!
