So, please come in and succumb to the charms of Riad Jaune Safran ...
Riad Jaune Safran is located at 170/171 Zaouia Abbassia Trik Suika in the Bab Taghzout area in Marrakech.
Placed in the heart of the medina it is just 5 min. of a nice walking from the madrassa Ben Youssef, 10 minutes from the Majorelle gardensand 15 minutes walking distance from Jamaa El Fna place. One minute walking distance from the Bab Taghzout taxi and car parking.
Bab Taghzout’s gate, of almoravidean origin, and the nearer Sidi Bel Abbes neighbourhood, which have been linked to the Medina at the end of 1700, represent an unquestioned historical-cultural heritage.
Bab Taghzout has remained a popular neighbourhood, still not touristic, therefore, it’s quieter than the other neighbourhood where the souks are. The little streets here are tight; the houses are simpler, with children playing in front of the doors. Its beauty depends on the fact that it seems to live in another age. In these streets, you can find a traditional furnace, in which the inhabitants come to cook their homemade bread, a public hammam, different markets and many little shops.
Do not miss the Zaouia Sidi Bel Abbes, the mausoleum of the most famous of the seven saints of Marrakech, and the Mjadlia a street, at which sides there are arcades and handcraft’s workshops that bring you to the Poor’s Mosque. The monumental complex has been built in different ages and it is made up of a medersa (school) and a mosque, dated beginning of 1600, to which during the following centuries a zaouia (oratory) and a fountain have been added.
If you like shopping, must see the Bab Khemis market!
