A must try. The square comes to life at night with countless stalls selling very cheap and very good food.

It's two completely different scenarios. By day a lot of hot during summer and by night there is more life. Be aware of the Hena tatoos, don't let them take your hand because they will ask for money. Also the monkeys. We ate in one...More

Lots to see. People very friendly. On the outskirts of the square there are snake charmers and men with monkeys, as an animal lover I was not impressed, however the stalls of fruit and spices were impressive.

When in Marrakech you must visit the Jemaa el Fna. The Square is located in the center of the Medina and accessible from any location within a five minute walk when staying inside the Medina. The place becomes alive at night and the energy it's...More
