In Assouline's impressive coffee-table book "Marrakech Flair," Marisa Berenson, muse of Yves Saint Laurent in the early 1970s and actress in iconic films such as Bob Fosse's "Cabaret" and Stanley Kubrick's "Barry Lyndon," invites readers to explore their personal version of Marrakech. Berenson fell in love with Marrakech eight years ago, and when she found the perfect riad, she decided to call it her home.

Marrakesh is said to stimulate all the senses. Whether it is seeing the intricate silk tiling; smelling the various spices sold in the souks; hearing the call to prayer sounding from nearby mosques; touching the supple leather used to make a pair of babouches (leather sandals); tasting a flavorful tagine, Marrakech never disappoints. Located just west of the Atlas Mountains, the city has been inhabited by Berber farmers for centuries. It is called the "Ochre City" because of its abundance of red sandstone buildings and red city walls, which now surround the Medina, where Jemaa el-Fnaa is located, one of the busiest squares in Africa.

Marrakech overflows with culture and has been inspiring visitors for decades. From Yves Saint Laurent to Talitha Getty, Winston Churchill to Mick Jagger, Marrakech has attracted great icons inspired by the city's eternal spirit and sweet, beautiful life. Yves Saint Laurent's intimate relationship with this city led to the opening of a museum dedicated to his legendary work. There are numerous museums showcasing Moroccan art, photography, carpets and the Andalusian design aesthetic that permeates the city's architecture. There are countless ways to be immersed in Marrakesh's culture, but perhaps the best place to start is with a simple glass of mint tea.
