The Red City: Marrakech, Morocco

Marrakech is known as the ‘Red City’ thanks to the blush-coloured walls that surround it.

Constructed in the 12th century, the bricks are made from tabia, which is a mixture of red mud and water from the Hazou plains.

But anyone who’s been to the city will know that its nickname doesn’t do it justice. Red is just one colour in Marrakech’s kaleidoscope.
