We recently contributed to the website www.theculturetrip.com a well-known, and highly useful, web resource that showcases the best of art and culture for every country in the world. Morocco is covered well and the site includes essays and round-ups on everything from expat writers in Tangiers, to the top ten art galleries in Morocco.
The site also sells books and films about Morocco, including classics like ‘Casablanca’ and ‘Morocco’, a classic romantic drama starring Gary Cooper and Marlene Dietrich. Travel books include all the regular guidebooks along with specific books on culture and shopping, and there are also titles covering spirituality, art, architecture, fiction, history and food.
For our contribution, we chose to write about gardens in Marrakech in a piece called ‘An Oasis of Calm: The Historical Gardens of Marrakech.’ In the article we talk about how the gardens of Marrakech have inspired writers and artists over the years and which ones are really worth a visit.
