Maison de la Photographie

Maison de la Photographie

La Maison de la Photographie is one of my very favorite spots in Marrakesh.  This gallery in a courtyard mansion in the old city features dozens of photos depicting Moroccan culture and history over the last 150 years or so.  A documentary on Berber life by Daniel Chicault, shot 1956, runs on a loop on the second floor.  The gift shop is also a great place to pick up prints and postcards.  And when you are done seeing and shopping, lounge at the rooftop terrace cafe.
