    Best Places to visit on a Short Break to Marrakech, Morocco

    I'm off to Morocco in a few weeks. Do any hubbers have any recommendations for places and things to do in Marrakech? I'm there for a day and a half so need to make sure I spend my time wisely. Thanks in advance

    Tourists and visitors want to spend time in the main square, Jamaa el-Fnaa.
    In terms of architecture, there's the Bab Agnaou city gate, Ben Youssef Madrasa Islamic College, El Badi Palace, and Koutoubia Mosque, the latter of which is the model for the Giralda of Sevilla, Spain. The Saadian tombs include exquisite Italian marble construction.
    In terms of gardens, the Aqdal Gardens is a UNESCO World Heritage Site (as is Marrakesh's medina), and the cobalt blue complex of the Marjorelle Garden is the place where French designer Yves Saint-Laurent's ashes are scattered and his North African textile collections stored in the on-the-grounds Islamic Art Museum.
    Have fun!
