Marrakech is listed as one of the most important cultural centers in all of Morocco.
Legend has it that when the Koutobia was built in the heart of this city, it began to bleed in such a way that it was dyed red, a color that predominates in the city and its surrounding houses.
Just stepping on its entrance takes you to a magical place of palaces, mosques, souks, crystal lamps and the smell of mint.
