The Seven Saints of Marrakech

Les sept saints de Marrakech
  • Historical Tour Route

It’s been about 300 years since Sultan Moulay Ismaïl de Marrakech came up with a way to deal with the growing influence of the seven saints of Regraga from the Essaouira region. Seven Saints were chosen, with only one thing in common: they’re all buried in the Red City. So Made in Marrakech decided to take a look at who they were and why they were named saints. Because then in 2005, at Bab Doukkala, seven towers were built to honour these seven men, who are part of the history and culture of the City of Marrakech. Source: madeinmarrakech.co.uk
