I took the picture in Marrakech
The city was founded in 1062 by Abu Bakr Ibn Omar, King of the Almoravid dynasty. In the past, Morocco was known in the East under the name of Marrakech (name still current in Iran); the name Morocco itself comes from the deformation of the Spanish pronunciation of Marrakech Marruecos.

Marrakech has about 903,589 inhabitants (2009 census) spread over an area of 230 sq. km. The population density reaches 350 inhabitants per hectare in the Medina. This is the fourth largest city in Morocco after Casablanca, Rabat and Fez. The city is divided into two distinct parts: the Medina, or historical city (ten kilometers speaker) and the new city whose neighborhoods are called major: Guéliz and Wintering. Guéliz is now the downtown mall. It was founded by the French during the Protectorate. The Hivernage concentrates many resorts. In recent years, the city expanded in the periphery especially in the west with the appearance of new residential areas for the region as Targa or extension of the Avenue Mohammed VI or north Tamansourt
