My favourite area of the Medina, shops with interesting local artifacts instead of the cheap Asian knock-offs. Although, as in the rest of the Medina, the noisy, smelly, speeding motorcycles ruin the experience. The city government should ban them from the area.

Lovely wares on sale in this street. Also a must-visit is the Musee de Mouassine. Don't forget to drink tea on the roof!

To me, the Rue Mouassine is nothing special. The upper part starts next to the large square and to the west of the Souks in the north of the Medina. Probably a less aggressive part then in the Souk Medina, perhaps more relaxed about harassing you to buy goods, but still busy.

I really like the quarter of Mouassine, my favorite one in medina of Marrakech. I know almost all the shops, nice bakery, good coffe shop and friendly Moroccan people.

One of the most beautiful and colorful streets in the medina with lots of interesting crafts but crowded by tourists as usual and too much hustling by vendors...

When we searched for Mouassine museum, we walked on this alley around the souks. If you don't have a map or GPS, this is the street for exit or enter in this part of souks. Less haresment for shopers...

We followed this road to take us into Souk - much more straightforward. Lots of alleyways with small mosques, and interesting looking Riad doors. Not sure why this is an attraction in itself as this is part of the central medina.

I stayed in this area of Marrakech for the second year, and wasn't disappointed upon my return. The main souks are an experience and there are some real bargains to be had but for a more relaxed and laid back experience, Rue du Mouassine is much nicer and not so frantic! It's worth going to the souks in Fna square... More

This alley is like shopping for beginners less stress, you can just potter along without getting overly harrassed nice eateries along it has well, once you feel confident head into the souks.
