We start our visit from the square of the tin and metal frames workshops, we have a short passage in the historical Jewish quarter Mellah, then we visit the famous Bahia palace near by. After that we walk through the puzzling alleys of the medina until we reach the 16th century Saadien complex which contains the very large Mouassine mosque, the fabulous multi-arched fountain,the library and the Hammam.In less than five minutes we reach to dyers corner where you will be surely impressed by the beautiful colors applied to wool and silk.Then just next to it we will go through the iron work place where the blacksmiths are busy doing their hard work. After that we will have the chance to see an example of the Foundouks of the medina which were hotels and rest places where the merchants of the caravans used to have a loging, exchange products and feed their beasts. Then we will visit a 400 years communal bakery. Next to that we will go to see the Shrine of one of the seven saints of Marrakesh. At the end of the visit we lead the way back to the UNESCO site Jema El Fena square with the monkey-tamers, snake charmers, herborists, story-tellers, fortune- tellers, musicians and others.You will have your free time there to do what you like.
