In the late afternoon the cafes, monkey acts horses and electric cars are joined by sellers of sports clothes. They hawk their clothing almost in competition after posing sports shoes and arranging clothes. They are joined by circles of locals gathered around dancers and jugglers,...More

Nice to explore - much less hectic than the squares and souks in Fez and Marrakesh. Be sure to go down the sidewalk at the south corner and then walk through the covered market.

I advise avoiding this "restaurant" at all costs. They cheated us by promising free drink and at the time of payment they told us that they only included tea, they charged us € 12 (120DH) for a piece of chicken with rice, when in the...More

Lots of fun going on with tourists and locals and families out for the day. It was a calmer, just slightly, version of the Jemma El Fna... we had only been there for 2 minutes when we spotted an ostrich, large as life! More monkeys...More

I don't get the appeal, honestly. I guess it's "interesting" to walk through it but to me, there's nothing else. It's a square, wow, big deal. You know, like a place where people come, buy things, discuss, eat at restaurants, socialize... or where tourist congregate...More
