The city served as an important caravan stop for traders travelling between Fes and Senegal. In the 12th century, Marrakech became the capital of the Kingdom of the Almohads.

The red walls of the city’s medina (old quarter) and the numerous kasbahs (fortified villages) give Marrakech its nickname of the “Red City” or “Ochre City”.

In 2018, Lonely Planet listed Marrakech as the number 1 travel destination in the world.

Some of the places that tourists commonly visit while in Marrakech are the Jemaa el-Fnaa, a square and marketplace in the medina; the Koutoubia Mosque with its 212-foot (65-meter) minaret; and the Saadian Tombs, a 16th-century burial ground for members of the ruling Saadian dynasty. Other popular attractions include Majorelle Garden, a botanical garden created by French artist Jacques Majorelle; the Bahia Palace, a 19th-century palace used by the sultan of Morocco; and the Dar Si Said Museum, housed in a former palace.
