Back into Marrakech Old Town

Day 6

sunny

Today we headed back into the square and on to the saddian Tombs. This is the cemetery of the saadian Sultans and their entourage ( take Rue Riad Zitoun from the square and head straight. The acess is through a narrow passage on the corner of the mosque - entrance: 10 dirahms). It was quite interesting to see the different styles of tombs.

Afterwards we went to El Badi Palace which is a ruined complex ofcrumbling walls with stork's nests perched on top of it. It was sooooo hot on that day and so we took it easy and relaxed a bit there before heading back into the square.

Mid-afternoon we took a walk into Gueliz which is the New Town. This is where all the modern cafes, restaurants and posh hotels are. We strolled into Jardin el Harti which is very tranquil and pretty. seems to be where the locals hang out.
