Location: East Medina

East Medina is for example Bab Ailen district.

This is a popular area, which had a bad reputation among marrakchis between 1950 and 2005. It was then a poor neighborhood, known for its fights and its people to the shady activities theft, trafficking, false guides …
Since Western people buy non renovated riads in Marrakesh, many riads have been restored in the area. For several reasons. An economic reason: the neighborhood, precisely because of its reputation, but also because it is not in the immediate vicinity of the Jemaa el Fna square nether near tourist places, it has become very attractive when riads price per m2 have increased. From 2004/2005, with an equal investment, there are much larger surfaces, and sometimes real architectural jewels in the Bab Ailen, because in this area as in others, there were palaces and master riads to be renovated. A geographical reason then: this is a neighborhood that has a gate, Bab Ailen door, on the walls, so it is very easy to get out. Ample parking in front of the walls allows to park his car without difficulty, which is not the case in the inner districts of the Medina. Ultimate advantage for golfers, the Royal Golf and Amelkis Golf are within 10 minutes drive; and prevents any traffic from downtown!

The Bab Ailen district is home to one of the 7 saints of Marrakech. Patron saints of the city, and sometimes objects of royal visits.

Finally Bab Ailen is now a very nice neighborhood: while popular, but very lively, with a local life with Marrakech most ancient inhabitant. The locals know most of the families and recognize each other, which is the guarantor of peace and respect.

Important too! a lovely fresh market is held every day. Beautiful seasonal fruits and vegetables, meat, fish, country eggs, herbs for tea … color the main street of Bab Ailen, every morning. But you will also find convenience stores, pharmacies, bicycle repairers …

East of the Medina there is also the Bab Ghmat (South East), Bab Debbagh (home tanners) and Lalla Aouda Saadia districts, who each have a door on the ramparts as Bab Ailen. The Bousekri area, very poor and quite recent. And inside the Medina, the Issebtiine and Sidi Youb neighborhoods.
