Name: Medina of Marakkesh Founded in 1070–72 Founded by: The Almoravid Significance: Marrakesh is the most important of the four former imperial cities in the history of Morocco. Inhabited byBerber farmers from Neolithic times, the city was founded in 1062 by Abu Bakr ibn Umar, chieftain and cousin of Yusuf ibn Tashfin. Led by the Almoravids, many mosques including theKoutoubia Mosque andmadrasas (Koranic schools) were built here during the 12th century with Andalusian influence. The red walls of the city, built by Ali ibn Yusufin 1122-1123, and various buildings constructed during this period have given the city the nickname of the "Red City" or "Ochre City" because of the red sandstone used.
