Vibrant colours, tantalising smells and sensational tastes. When it comes to destinations described as being a real 'feast for the senses', Marrakesh tops the list every time.

From the sights and smells of the bustling souks to the laid back atmosphere amid the city's deeply ingrained café culture, Marrakesh is absolutely brimming with personality. The locals are friendly, the food is superb and there is plenty in the way of things to do. What more could you ask for? Well, fascinating rich history and incredible architecture are also thrown in for good measure. Amateur photographers will also find themselves extremely well catered for. From the city's wealth of enchanting architecture to street scenes featuring everyday life, Marrakesh holidays provide plenty of opportunities to capture beautiful snaps to treasure forever. 

The city traces its origins to the Berber Sanhaja tribe, founders of the 11th century Almoravid dynasty. Leader Youssef Ben Tachfine took notice of the area's strategic position and, after setting up a camp there, made the decision to construct ramparts around the outside. The settlement's iconic pink architecture would later follow. After a series of campaigns that led to the control of the entire region of Andalusia, the city became the heart of a powerful empire. Much of the city's history can still be viewed today, with structures and buildings stretching back over centuries visible on Marrakesh tours. From the winding streets of the Medina to the 12th century Koutoubia Mosque, it's very easy to find yourself transported back in time while on a visit to this extraordinary city. 

In the unlikely case that the city's history fails to impress, the stunning craftsmanship on display at almost every turn is sure to do the job. From intricately-detailed painted ceilings and perfectly-carved wood to colourful tiles and lavish marble, the city's deep artisanal heritage is impossible to miss. Simply strolling through one of the souks or popping into one of the city's many riads provides the chance to be awe struck by the level of meticulous design and handiwork that still exists here today.
