Rabat – Marrakech’s Jamaa Lfna square tops the new ranking of “TOP-25 African Landmarks” published by TripAdvisor, the world’s largest tourism and travel website.
After designating Marrakech among the world’s best tourist destinations in early 2015, TripAdvisor selected four monuments of the ocher city in his new ranking with the legendary Jamaa Lafna on top of the ranking.
“This place is a human menagerie, alive with merchants, traders, tourists, acrobats, snake charmers, game players, musicians, food stalls, drummers. There’s nothing like it on earth,” says TripAdvisor.
Marrakech being the most popular destination of the Kingdom, topped the ranking of Africa’s most famous landmarks.
In addition to Jamaa Lfna, the ranking of Africa’s 25 most visited landmarks includes 8 other Moroccan landmarks. Casablanca’s Hassan II mosque ranks second in the ranking. It is followed by Medersa ben Youssef in third position, the souks of Marrakech in fourth position, Essaouira Ramparts in 9th position, Ksar Ait-Ben-Haddou (11), Marrakech’s Bahia Palace (17), Meknes’ Volubilis (12) and Rabat’s Chellah (25).
TripAdvisor’s ranking confirms that Marrakech’s appeal lies in its millennial history and its architectural and cultural heritage.
