Zawiya Sidi Abd El Aziz

Mouassine & Central Souqs

On the corner where Rue Amesfah splits, note the jewel-like door with stained glass, centuries-old carved wooden lintel and plasterwork detailing in the high alley wall. This beautiful feast of Moroccan craftsmanship is the entry to the Zawiya Sidi Abd El Aziz religious complex, a shrine honouring one of Marrakesh's seven saints, restored in 2019.
