Better then the Main square but still don't know why it is worth to see it. At least there are no rip offs or just limited.

Loved this square located by the spice market, lots of fun things to see and buy. I ate at the Cafe De Espices 2x in this square on my visit and ordered their fresh pressed juices daily.

Not as big as the Jemaa el Fnaa and not ot be confused with it. Good as a location fix, and the small cafes around it make for a good stop to eat something or get a tea or coffee
