The famous medina in the heart of Marrakech is an endless maze of markets that create a dazzling colourful, vibrant shopping experience. Packed full of the richest fabrics, beautiful leathers and artistic ironwork, the winding, narrow cobbled passageways are home to stall after stall crammed full of kaftan's, jewelled leather slippers, bags and skilfully created lamps. 
The miles after miles of alleyways are packed with thousands of stalls, all of which sell very similar things, so it's pretty easy to get confused! Get lost in the depths of the souk and you'll find bustling courtyards full of men at work, crafting the goods for the stalls. Venture further, and down narrow dark passages are the apartments in which the locals live.
The souk is busy, bustling, hot, noisy and hectic, but full of character and culture that's quite unique - a fascinating, sensory shopping experience unlike any other.  The most poignant element is the live work and retail element of the medina.  A complete production line and retail store all under one roof.
