Assouline Marrakech Flair hardcover showcases Marrakech that awakens all the senses, be it seeing the intricate masonry tiles; smelling the various spices sold in the souks; hearing the prayers from the nearby mosque; The supple leather of babouches (leather sandals); tasting delicious tajine, Marrakech is always exciting. Located west of the Atlas Mountains, the city has been inhabited by Berber farmers for centuries. Known as the "ocher city" due to the proliferation of red sandstone buildings and red walls, it now surrounds the medina, home to Jemaa Square, one of Africa's busiest squares.
Brimming with culture, Marrakech has been inspiring tourists for decades. From Yves Saint Laurent to Talitha Getty, Winston Churchill to Mick Jagger, Marrakech has attracted many great icons with its timeless spirit and sweet, beautiful life. Yves Saint Laurent's closeness to the city has led to the opening of a museum dedicated to his legendary work. The annual Marrakech International Film Festival attracts a large audience. Museums abound, showcasing Moroccan art, photography, carpets and the Andalusian design aesthetic that permeates the city's architecture. Opened in 1923, La Mamounia has a rich history, hosting guests such as Winston Churchill. Vanessa Branson's El Fenn is a collection of traditional riads formed into one stunning boutique hotel. There are countless ways to immerse yourself in Marrakech culture, but perhaps the best place to start is with a simple cup of mint tea.
