Koutoubia Gardens

Park in Djemaa El Fna & Around

Stretching out behind the Koutoubia Mosque, this palm-tree-dotted swath of greenery is a Marrakshi favourite spot for strolling, relaxing on park benches and generally taking a quiet break. If you need some downtime after dodging motorbikes amid the medina's skinny alleyways, take the locals' lead and head here for a peaceful meander. There are great views of the Koutoubia Mosque's minaret.
