MARRAKECH
Destination Info

Marrakesh was founded in 1062 under the reign of the Almoravid King Yusuf ibn Tashfin. Quickly many mosques and madrassas were built and the city became a major center for traffic between the western Maghreb and sub-Saharan Africa.
Many palaces were built using Andalusian craftsmen from Córdoba and Seville, who brought the Umayyad style characterized by carved and lobed arched domes.
In 1122 the city was fortified by walls by the son of Youssef Ibn Tachfine Ali Ben Youssef.
In 1147 the Almoravid lost the city against the Almohad and almost all the monuments and palaces were destroyed by the Almohads as they considered the Almoravid to be heretics. In 1184 they built the impressive Koutoubia Mosque on the ruins of an Almoravid Palace.

In the sixteenth century Marrakesh became the capital of the Saadian Empire and the city was embellished and restored during the reign of Ahmed Al-Mansur Ad Dhahbi (‘the golden’ in Arabic) who brought more than half a ton of gold from Timbuktu (Mali). This gold was partly used to build the sumptuous El Badi palace.

After the end of the Saadi Dynasty in 1659, the Alaouite dynasty took control over Morocco and Meknes became the new capital of the Empire.

Due to the historical presence of many civilizations, Tangier has a rich history that begins when Antaeus, son of Poseidon, would have chosen to give his wife’s name, Tingis (“Tanjah” in Arabic), to a place on the Mediterranean coast. But it was most likely the Berbers who have created Tinga, the lagoon city. The Phoenicians installed a business counter from Lixus, around the 7th or the 6th century BC. After the fall and the destruction of Carthage, Tangier became Roman and was even declared as the capital of Mauretania, Tingitane. Later, during the 8th century of our era, it served the Arab goals in Europe.

Considered by the latter to be a strategic post, Tangier was stormed by Berber troops, freshly converted to Islam, and became Arab for the first time. The city became Moroccan (through the Idrissides), then Spanish, though the Cordoba Omeyyades, then Moroccan again through the big dynasties. Taking advantage of its exceptional location on the strait, the Tingitane Peninsula observes closely, the big European embarkations on the sea, to trade and discover new horizons.
