A mad house on steroids!! No words can truly describe the frenetic and hyperactivity of this square in the evening. Snake charmers, acrobats, story tellers and colourful water carriers to name but a few. Couple of hints - if you want to take photos of all the characters expect to pay them 20durhams and dont give them any more. Do not eat in the square despite what the travel books tell you - it is not the food that is the concern but the oil in which they cook the food so best to avoid. Best advice is sit in one of the cafes and watch the theatrics go one from a distance - you could easily spend hours doing so. A must see in Marrakech and be prepared for the onslaught of both pleasant and unpleasant aromas!
