a large plain square with hawkers and some entertainers. Some activities may be novel eg teeth sellers or snake charmers etc
We went here at various times of the day. Midday it is like any big square but the orange sellers are very tempting with their half litre of fresh orange juice for 40 cent. We went at sunset and it was stunning with the Koutoubia mosque silhouetted against a glorious ever changing sky which rapidly became night. But if you... More
Having a leisurely exploratory walk in the evening here is unfortunately impossible here. You will be bombarded by food/drink places trying every trick in the book to get you seated to order something. Surprisingly, the prices in the open air stalls were very affordable (and good if you're coming from a country with a stronger currency), despite it being a... More
This is what Morocco is all about! The market sells the same things as the markets in other cities in Morocco, but this place is a sight to see! Snake charmers, orange juice sellers, amazing food vendors, henna artists, plus tons of places selling everything from clothing to spices. We had sheep's head here, which is delicious, if a little...

great place to visit, with market stall, food sellers and snake charmers. Many inexpensive restaurants with terraces surround the square- providing tagines and other traditional food- great place to eat an evening meal
Brilliant atmosphere particularly at night. I was here during Ramadan, and at dusk, the place becomes alive with street hawkers and a myriad of food stalls - try the snails!

By contrast in the following night we had sheep's head, calamari, chips and the rest in the Jemaa el Fna. It is such an amazing place - the sound, smell and ambiance are unique. My advice to any traveller is... More
Bustling heart of Marrakech! At the entrance to the Souks and home to some delicious food. Prices vary significantly depending on what you chose: we had a lamb tagine for two with crusty bread and drink for 70 diram (about £5!) but then in the evening had fish on the market for £15 for a full meal. This is however... More
Well, where to start with Jemaa el Fna? This area is one like no other we have visited. By day it is filled with large volumes of those selling their wares, ranging from scarfs, plants, snacks, jewellery, henna and the best testing orange juice ever, just to name a few... Certainly an area full of unique charm however we felt... More
but seems to be overrated. Lots of 'looky looky'men trying to sell phones and headphones etc. and stalls selling football shirts, which detracted from the traditional sellers that there were.
