The architecture of this place is breathtaking, and although there were lots of visitors around, one can almost feel the tranquil atmosphere

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Hidden within the souk, this was a bit of a walk but the architecture was beautiful with lots of carved details. It would be a shame to go to Marrakech and not take the time to visit this Gem
