Marrakech is known as the ‘red city’ because everything in the city (and in most Moroccan villages) is a red clay color. There is beautiful decoration in the entry ways to mosques and palaces, but other elements of the detail I envisioned are few and far between. The cities themselves are not all that aesthetically pleasing to be quite honest, but some of the restaurants, hotels and attractions make up for that.
Anyway, throughout my tour of the country, I was extremely surprised to see how often the landscape changes. From snow-capped mountains to green farmland to the desert, Morocco really has it all. Today I walked through the Todra Gorge which added another landscape to the list – and it was absolutely incredible!
