Experience the authentic side of Marrakech by staying at La Maison @airbnb in the middle of the old medina and start your day feasting on a delicious Moroccan style breakfast! #EditFeast
The mosque is the largest in Africa and can accommodate 105,000 worshippers. Built and partially funded by King Hassan II (the remaining funds were gathered through a somewhat controversial public subscription process), the mosque complex was designed by French architect Michel Pinseau, took six years to build and was completed in 1993. Its dramatic location overhanging the ocean waves echoes verse from the Quran, which states that God’s throne was built upon the water. Believers pray on a centrally heated floor, and can see the Atlantic breaking over the rocks underneath the glass floor in the basement and feel the sunlight through the retractable roof.
The size and elaborate decoration of the prayer hall is simply spectacular. A team of more than 6000 master craftspeople was assembled to work on the mosque, delicately carving intricate patterns and designs in cedar from the Middle Atlas and pink granite from Agadir. The gates were made from brass and titanium, and the ablution fountains in the basement, which are shaped like huge lotus flowers, were carved from local marble.
To see the interior visitors must be ‘decently and respectfully dressed’ (knees and upper arms need to be covered); women do not require a headscarf. Hour-long tours are conducted in French, English, German and Spanish, and take in the prayer hall, subterranean ablutions rooms and never-used hammam.
Golden hour no Agafay!!! Há quem prefira o pôr do sol e há quem prefira ver o dia raiar!!! Eu amo os dois💕
Na primeira foto no pôr do sol e um calor de aproximadamente 30 graus🌞😜 e na segunda o nascer do sol maravilhoso e aquela friaca noturna do deserto!
Nesses dois momentos do dia, apenas contemplava o espetáculo e me conectava com o silêncio e a natureza do deserto!!! Dias inesquecíveis e a vontade de já repetir a experiência!!! #goldenhour#sunrise#sunset#glamping
Part of the daily routine in Marrakech: go straight to drink some fresh juices, made with really fresh and taste fruits! For just 40 cents you can get a fresh orange juice for example, and for about 1€ you can have some mixed juice, one of my fav? Avocado and strawberry!
Anyway, those guys were super friendly to me, when I said I was Italian they treated me like a real friend!
In the 3rd pic, you can see how busy is this city during the day, and you can also admire a beautiful moon even during the day! Amazing.
