Marrakech Museum - Great Attractions (Morocco) [00:55]
Take a tour of Marrakech Museum in Morocco -- part of the World's Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats. Morocco's Dar Menebhi Palace is home to the Marrakech Museum. Built in the 1800s, the Palace was transformed into a museum in 1997. It is famous for its preservation of Andalusian architecture and design. Exquisitely tiled interiors are a highlight of the classical style. Traditional decor is laid out much as it was when the palace was built. The museum also houses art and archaeological exhibits. Beautiful inner and outer courtyards complete the palace's splendor.

Chefchaouen, Morocco [04:53]
Chefchaouen was initially a base for Riffian berber tribes from which attacks on Portuguese Ceuta were made. After the fall of Granada in 1492 there was a wave of Muslim and Jewish refugees that flooded into Morocco. Here they introduced a distinct Andalusian architectural style including tiled roofs, hanging balconies, and courtyards. The result is breathtaking. Narrow cobbled-stoned streets meander through a maze of blue. Thankfully dead end alleys are painted white which is incredibly helpful when getting around. The main square, the Plaza Uta el-Hammam, is the town social center with cafes and restaurants across from the Grand Mosque and newly restored Kasbah. This is the best and cheapest place to eat. It was our first taste of Morocco. Chefchaouen is also a great place to shop. Wood crafts and berber jewelery is prolific and made locally, but the the wool garments and rugs are the speciality here. Our accommodation was on a rooftop terrace with excellent views of the Plaza Uta -el Hammam and the Kasbah. After it cools a bit, heading out of the western gate to the falls makes for a pleasant walk. There are some great hikes into the Rif mountains from Chefchaouen, if you are a little less ambitious there is a trail up to the ruined Mosque that affords some great views of the town.
