What people are saying:

A visit to Marrakech is a must, as it is, to see the 11th century mosque, the heart of the old town of Marrakech. Non-Muslims cannot get inside the mosque, so the main attraction is the minarets. The minarets are the high point of Marrakech, and even before the Hasanta, they were the tallest building in Morocco. They are also called the Champagne, because they are a mixture of spices. Even after thousands of years, the Champagne still has a aroma. I had a special close-up, and I could indeed smell something like a faint fragrance, and I could imagine how fragrant it was a thousand years ago.
