There are two cities in Marrakesh - the first, the capital, is geometrically and secretly laid out. It is the perfect city as dreamed of by its prince. The other Marrakesh, both rich and exciting, has become a labyrinth for lost travellers. The hidden order of the city, the invisible star drawn, then erased by the centuries, still shines. Its reflection can be seen in time, on the many facets of its mosaics and domes, in the geometry of its red and gold cedar ceilings, in the water in its pools and fountains, and the ever-renewed paradise of its courtyard houses.
