Taxis weave through the square, exhausted looking ponies pull tourist carriages;scooters, vans, donkeys, handcarts all over loaded with people and/or goods come from every angle!

We saw Jemaa el Fna during the day and in the evening - both times it is very busy. I definitely recommend going in the evening and finding a roof top terrace to watch the sun set, it really was beautiful.

This is a mad mad place to visit in that it is full of life both day and night. It certainly comes to life at night with the snake charmers and places to eat.

I first visited this World Heritage site at night time. It was thronging with people and the noise and people were overwhelming. In the daytime I could see much more. The large square is surrounded by touristy shops all trying to sell souvenirs, leather goods, traditional clothes and lights, creams and potions etc. There are many shops selling the same... More
