Marrakech (aka Marrakesh) is the major city in southern Morocco and lies in the foothills of the Atlas mountains. It consists of a big old town, the Medina centered around the Djemaa el-Fna square with souks and ancient palaces and mosques, and a big new town (Ville Nouvelle) to the west. Marrakech draws a large number of tourists and is an ideal base to explore the nearby Atlas mountain range and the desertic regions to the southeast.
