How to get to the Riad:
The Medina is the walled ancient city and heart of Marrakech, full of winding streets and hidden passageways that are easy to get lost in. For your convenience, we recommend that you take advantage of the airport shuttle service. You will be met at the arrivals hall of the airport by your chaffeur. Cars are not permitted to enter the Medina, thus you will be driven to the nearest entrance to the riad where a baggage carrier will greet you, load and carry your bags, and escort you to the riad.
Jemaa El Fna Square: Africa´s most famous and vivacious square, Jemaa El Fna, is just a short 4 minute walk from Dar Justo. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site and remains Marrakech´s cultural and business centre, a surviving link between past and present. While you will no longer encounter public executions and beheadings here, the square remains bustling with snake charmers, musicians, magicians, monkey trainers, storytellers, performance artists, local food stalls, tradesmen and locals and adventurers from all walks of life.
Souks: Seconds from our doorstep you will step into the completely different world of the souks. Don´t be surprised if you´re invited to share Moroccan mint tea and stories with the locals as you peruse the winding, intensely colourful networks of stalls offering artisan-crafted leather, pottery, jewelry, carpets, metalwork, clothing, and nearly anything you can possibly imagine.
Palaces: For those curious about the historical richness that ancient Moroccan royalty left behind, the riad is within 15 minutes walking distance of three of Marrakech´s most famous and impressive palaces, Badi Palace, Royal Palace, and Bahia Palace.
Koutoubia Mosque: A quick 4 minute walk away from Dar Justo lies Marrakech´s largest mosque, the Koutoubia. Built in the 12th century, it is a historic landmark and the oldest and most complete structure of the Almovad period in which it was built.
