Our Famous Location
Sidi Bel abbes (Xiith century) is the most famous saint of Marrakesh. He was a former teacher completely devoted to islam, he helped the beggars and the blind people. The medersa (quranic school) and the mosque date to1605, the fountain and the zaouia (holy shrine where the followers devote themselves to prayer) are older. This is the main mosque that royalty will come to when visiting Marrakech.
You may visit the central courtyard of this pretty Zaouia with its fountain, fancy carved plaster work and hand cut Moroccan tiles and you may be asked to make a donation to the Zaouia as the blind are still fed there every evening. This forms part of your route into the Medina and the souks.
Zamzam is just a 20 minute walk from the Marrakech Souks and Jemaa El Fnaa. Zamzam is located next to a road that leads to the Palmeraie and next to Marrakech's famous Yacout Restaurant. We are 5 minutes taxi or 15 minute walk to YSL Museum and Majorelle Gardens.
