Rue Bab Doukkala (from Bab Doukkala to the corner at Dar el Bacha) is a great local market street where local people do their daily shopping and is a natural route for tourists to take from that end of the new town towards the souks. From Baba Doukkala a minute or so into the street on the right you'll find the Fish Shop Cafe (as I call it - see seperate review), fruit and vegetable stalls and shops, barber shops and next along a small square with spice shops and guys selling real, working tagines. The best prices for tagines are here, from 25 Dirhams as they are the real deal, not the fancy tourist ones for display only. As you meander along, bearing left when you come to a huge palm tree in the middle of the street you'll find an art gallery and one of the local hammams (beside the Grand Mosque Bab Doukkala). Following along is one of the hidden treasures of Marrakech. Just before the last Derb on the left, before you reach the main road is a large wooden door covered with studs and the number 144 above also in studs (see sperate review). Finally you arrive at Dar el Bacha and a tricky road to cross before you are on the "posh" Marrakech shopping street.
