Location & History
Riad Goloboy is located in the heart of the medina, in the royal district of Sidi Mimoun- safe, very characteristic, quiet and lively at the same time.
You will be just a few steps away from all the major sites of the medina, surrounded by the extraordinary beauty of the Koutoubia, the gardens of the Mamounia while overlooking the majestic Atlas Mountains. Distances: 500 meters from the Saadian Tombs, 500 meters from the Moulay El Yazid mosque and 600 meters from Djemaa El Fna. The airport of Marrakech-Menara is 4 km away.
Founded in 1070-1072 by the Almoravids (1056-1147), Marrakech was an important historical centre of the Islamic world, reigning over North Africa and Andalusia. Magnificent monuments date from this period: the Koutoubia Mosque, whose incomparable 77-metre minaret, an essential monument of Muslim architecture, is one of the great landmarks of the urban landscape and the very symbol of the city, the kasbah, the ramparts, the monumental gates and the gardens.
Other wonders, such as the Badiâ palace, the Ben Youssef madrasa, the Saadian tombs, the Bahia palace and the great mansions, are enclosed within the walls of the Medina.
Jamaâ El Fna Square, inscribed on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, is a veritable open-air theatre that always amazes visitors.
The Medina of Marrakesh has all its original components, both cultural and natural, of outstanding universal value.
