This is a wild place is filled with people and scents and color and a heartbeat. Beyond the snake charmers and poor monkeys running around in collars and leash, the experience of eating local cuisine in one of the many restaurants, buying spices, and bargaining...More

You may find any interesting and exotic thing in the square and in the streets which is around the square. Looks amazing and attractive.

A place to visit 2 times: day & night. Impressive the different scenarios. Walk around, enjoy, smell, see, be patient. An experience.

We visited marrakech in June and we’d heard a lot from people who’ve been about haggling/watch your bags etc. So were aware of that, however nothing could prepare us for the craziness of the square! Although fascinating at first, with the narrow and colourful shopping...More

If you aren't comfortable being harassed and grabbed/touched by some of the most aggressive hawkers anywhere on the planet, step into the dojo for a truly unique experience. Not for the faint of heart but if you are up for the challenge you will find...More

Everything in Marrakech revolves around the central square. Lots of cafe and restaurants to eat around the outside or try a meal at a pop up stall but be careful that what you're eating is fully cooked! Catch a horse and cart ride from here...More

Very lively and interesting place, with street vendors, that sell small souvenirs or food. We had dinner there at the 'food hall'. Dinner was grilled meat with sides. There is a lot to do for sure.

We visited the Big Square last night and had a good dinner overlooking the square. We liked it because it is so different from anything we have in the United States. It's very crowded and no credit cards are accepted. Only cash. Very few people...More

hi there, it varies, some of the shops in the market area close around midnight but many of the shops are open until 3-4am, so you will be fine and they are open from around 6:30-7am - hope that helps

Best time is on an evening as all the pop up food places have been assembled. During Ramadan is not the best idea (due to end early June), as not as much going on. Ladies don’t need to be covered, but you may feel more... More
