Enchanting Cities - Marrakesh with Alex McKay

Enchanting Cities

10 July 2021 - 10 July 2021 2.00pm - 3.00pm
Centenary Auditorium
Nestled under the snow-capped High Atlas mountains, the walled ‘red city’ of Marrakesh is one of the Arab world's greatest urban centres. The capital for four of Morocco's six royal dynasties, it showcases the finest Andalusian-influenced classical Islamic architecture, as well as the extraordinary central square, the Djemaa al-Fna (‘Assembly of the Dead’), where jugglers, magicians, and story-tellers ply their trade.

Home to the tombs of Morocco's seven patron saints, Christians were forbidden entry until 1867, after which the French colonials added the adjoining Ville Nouvelle. Join Alex McKay, author and lecturer, as he explores the colourful history and culture of this enchanting city.
