The City of Marrakech was founded in 1070, and has been serving as a cultural communication center since its foundation, and its influence has traveled to North Africa and Andalusia. The gates, Medina, and Koutoubia Mosque have become popular around this area since then. The Koutoubia Mosque near the souks of the Medina was a representative architectural art during the Almohad period. Later, it was turned into an Arab-Andalusian style architecture, and this is also the reason why this city has become famous. In addition, in Marrakech, you can also see the Ben Youssef Madrasa built in the 15th century, El Bahia Palace and its garden and courtyard, and Dar Si Said Museum built in the 19th century. Today, when these relics and modern buildings are put together, they become a royal treasure house.
