Accept what comes your way, take it in good... More

Wao. I was with my wife in Morocco last week. My suprice lay on the big square of Jemaa el Fna which is one of the best places that I have visited. The snake charmers - the monkey handlers - the story tellers and also the food at night is amazing and delicious. We would like to recommend any one... More

There are so many odd things to see here....snake charmers, tooth pullers, fortune tellers......plus a bunch of orange juice stands (famous for this square, however the juice we bought was watered down so not as good as we hoped), vendors and restuarants. All the restaurants have rooftop terraces and xou can sit in any one of them and just enjoy... More

this square is just bedlam! From the performing snake charmers and fire eaters to the motor bikes wizzing from one end to the other.The atmosphere is amazing but scary especially on a Saturday nite where it is just a maze of thousands of people. You just have to go with it and take it all in.

A great way to spend the night strolling and watching the action. Make sure to eat at the stalls set up!

The largest square in Africa is a MUST visit. It is transformed at night when it comes alive. Thousands of people come to experience acrobats, story tellers, snake charmers, henna ladies and so much more. A truley memorable experience.

Has to be experienced at least once. Joyful madness that can be a bit exhausting if you are not in the right fram of mind.

this square comes to life at night a wonderful place to visit. A very busy place, expect to be bothered by people but do not let it put you off.
