Such a ratway of such a variety of stools that you could spend hours in there. Scarf stalls are colouful, spice stalls smell intreging and the trinket stalls intice. Such a lovely place to walk around if you dont mind the stall owners trying to constantly get your attention

Interesting shops, but lungfuls of fumes from all the mopeds using the very narrow lanes as streets!

anything you may want you can find it there... but do learn how to haggle or you will find it a very cumbersome experience. Equally, do not allow for just anyone to convince you to go to another shop with them, just follow your route, smile and say no merci, no thanks, no gracias, 'la sucran', salaam, etc, and you...

Completely mad - not as touristy as I expected as although some good sold are for the benefot of tourists, it is also a place where the Moroccan people buy and sell their produce etc. Thought it would be intimidating but the people are friendly on the whole and haggling was good fun.
