Marrakesh/Marrakech

Marrakech, Morocco

First day in Marrakech, we were taken around the city, which isn’t big. It is the fourth largest city in the country, after Casablanca, Rabat and Fes. Marrakech was once the capital of Morocco. Like other Moroccan cities, it comprises an old fortified city with 19 gates for entrance and exit and now bordered by modern neighborhood. The charm of the old city is being preserved within the walls of the kasbah (fortress).

So, is it Marrakech or is it Marrakesh. While street signs are spelt Marrakesh which is in French spelling, Marrakesh is the English equivalent. Both are correct and used.

Horse drawn carriage in front of one of the 19 gates of Marrakech, Bab Agnaou. It’s the entrance to the royal kasbah in the southern part of the medina of Marrakech.
