A must-see on a visit to Marrakech. Right in the centre of the medina, close to the main souks. A constant hive of activity. By day the snake charmers with their cobras, by night a hubbub of street food stalls and groups of musicians. Expect to be constantly hassled.

This is a must. This square has a lot of history on it's belt and it's a buzzing market all day long. I recommend also visiting it in the evening/night when the drummers are out, lot's of snake and fire shows. It's very loud and basically the more extreme version of the Souks.

Especially the ones that offer a quicky, because that might cause you a rash. Ask your local hotel where to find a serious woman who uses... More

You either love this place or hate this place. There is no in between. We stayed 4 days in Marrakesh and visited Jemaa el Fanaa every evening and a couple of times during day. I must say that day and night experience are completely different and both should be experienced. In day this place is magical with snake charmers, monkeys,... More

Love going round the square looking at the monkeys and snakes!, and unlike Turkey the locals understand no means no! Had a first rate shave for £3.50,then off to Yamys for a coffee to watch the hustle and bustle and life go by.
