La Porte d'Orient, Marrakesh

9 Boulevard El Mansour Eddahbi
Morocco 40000
Tel: 212 24 43 89 67's insider take:

At first sight, this antiques shop in Guéliz, run for generations by the Bousfiha family, doesn't seem particularly impressive. But walk past the usual pots, Berber jewelry, and lanterns to a small door at the back of the shop. Through it is an Ali Baba cave of treasures: a cavernous warehouse of carpets, marble fountains, antique kasbah doors and windows, even whole palatial coffered ceilings. It's one of the city's most important antiques shops—even Tom Cruise was wowed at the collection—and arguably one of the best museums in Marrakesh.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 9 am to 7:30 pm.
