Set in the heart of Marrakech’s ancient medina, La Sultana Marrakech is a living work of art. The boutique hotel was built and crafted using traditional techniques from a bygone era, with hand-carved stones, intricate zellige tiles and tadelakt plaster preserving the cultural heritage of this UNESCO-listed corner of Morocco.
Rather than just observing these artistic techniques, which have been handed down from generation to generation, guests can now embark on an hour-long Living Architectural Heritage Tour led by the hotel’s architecture and heritage curators. Guides will reveal the history of ancient building techniques and take guests to visit the workshops where artisans practise their craft using traditional tools and methods. The tour is one of many activities guests at La Sultana can embark on to discover more about this fascinating city, from rooftop cooking classes and full-day urban safaris to a journey to the Agafay Desert and the foothills of the Atlas Mountains.
