‘Marrakech - Simply red’

I've always felt a special attraction to ancient cities that are surrounded by a wall. In Marrakech I found clearly my liking.

I've already posted two pictures (one in a workshop) of the walls of Marrakech. Hereby my third (and last) one.

Why are these walls so attractive to me?
First there are of course the aspects of the protection of the town, the impressive feel of these defenses and the beauty of the entrance gates.
In Marrakech there’s also the exotic feeling with the palmtrees in front of the walls and behind them.
At least this is the case for someone coming from a northern country.

But another important aspect in Marrakech is the colour of the walls.
That colour varies depending on the time of the day and of course on the weather.
As the two other pictures posted before this one is also taken with a setting sun behind me which makes that the walls become fiery red.
A red I will never forget.
