National Geographic listed Souk Rahba Kedima in Marrakech in its list of the “seven most exciting spice markets in the world”.
“The souks of the fortified medina of the city of Marrakech are intoxicating but no more so than the place of spices,” wrote National Geographic, specifying that the shops hidden from view offer everything from star anise to sticks of cinnamon and saffron strands, at relatively low prices.
Plus, “the center of the square is bustling with people selling everything from argan oil to herbal cosmetics. »
The travel magazine also recommended leaving with aromatic spice blends, including the famous ras el hanout, which revive the senses.
Ranked third, Rahba Kedima from Marrakech is positioned ahead of the Misir Carsisi market in Istanbul, Khari Baoli from Delhi to Delhi, the spice market from Mombasa and La Boqueri from Barcelona. Dubai’s Spice Souk tops the list, followed by Mexico’s Mercado Benito Juarez.
