The Catalans Inés and Bruno, cousins and partners in this adventure, bought this classic Riad, which was the old Derkaoui palace belonging to an aristocratic Moroccan family. After two years of restoration the Riad Abracadabra opened to the public. Its eight rooms reflect the personality marrakchí not exempt of European delicacies.
One of the best hotels in Africa, it belongs to the chain Aman. The architecture is imposing and staying there means much more than a 5 star hotel. Amanjena is the discreet luxury, the flight of the pretension, a bet to the silence, the ample spaces and the quality.

Although it is necessary to reserve with time, it is a obligatory stop in the gastronomic route of Marrakech. An old palace that revolves around a patio perfect for enjoying typical Moroccan food.
Grand Cafe de la Poste
It is the area of Gueliz, opened in the 1920s and was a meeting point for spies. Currently it continues to maintain that mystery and that makes it a mandatory stop for the aperitif with the fall of the sun.

Kaftanes and silk dresses with colorful and ethnic prints. A must stop in this oasis of the medina.
It is the industrial district away from the city, emerging young artists, others consecrated, collectors, decoration shops … they meet in this particular neighborhood with clandestine airs. Their schedule is not obvious, but this getaway is well worth it.
