Touring the Old Medina

My mom and I booked a day tour via Trip Advisor to visit Marrakesh’s old medina. The first stop was visiting the square and we also got henna!

Second, we visited the Ben Youssef Madrasa, an Islamic college named after named after the Almoravid sultan Ali ibn Yusuf (reigned 1106–1142). It is the largest madrasa in all of Morocco.

So I’ve alwaaaays wanted to go to Marrakesh and finally went in February of 2017 during my reading week. Marrakesh was the first stop, followed by Casablanca, and Paris France.

Marrakesh is sort of split into two sections: old town (Medina) and new town. For this trip I stayed in the Old Medina. Specifically a riad (a large traditional house built around a central courtyard), I stayed at the Riad Nashira & Spa – beautiful place!!!
