Watch Out For The Donkey

This is a triangular souk of the coppersmiths, It's busy and donkeys and their leader come and go picking up and delivering material. Worth stopping and watching.

Seeing the metal workers is a pleasure (seeing it, not doing it, I'm sure!). This square is very nice, even without them.

The metalworkers' Souk is firmly set on the tourist trail to the famous medieval Chouara tannery and provides an ideal rest stop to pause over a snack and coffee at the Seffarine cafe before proceeding through the medina.

There retail shops double as workshops, were medieval methods are used in producing utensils for the kitchen. Locals still buy these handmade products, not sure is it the price, quality... More

Next to the Qarraouiyyin university, you find a small square where crafstmen hammer copper and tin cauldrons. A lot of sound and some yelling around but the atmosphere is great and the teahouse also.
