Between the stones in the courtyard.
Decoration in the courtyard of a riad in Marrakesh: Riad is the most authentic accommodation for travelers who want to experience the culture and history of the country, and can be found in the old medinas of most Moroccan cities.
Riads have no exterior windows on the lower floors and are fully inward-facing. This keeps the heat, dust and noise out of the city while maintaining the privacy of residents – something that was particularly important for the Muslim women who once lived there.
Traditionally, the garden included citrus trees and a central fountain, although some modern riads have replaced it with a courtyard or plunge pool. | Morocco
