The former site of public executions (pre 19th century) has become the centre point of old Marrakech. At night there are thousands of people eating at the huge number of food stalls that have been erected. This is surrounded by streets of shops and the souk.
We found the whole experience most exhilarating. It is just a place to enjoy the ambience, and food.

If sitting in overpriced cafes watching beggars and being bothered by hawkers is your thing whilst being wafted by the smell of horse urine then this is the place to visit, otherwise go to the Badii Palace or stay in the new city.

You cannot go to Marrakesh without a visit to the main sqaure. By day snake charmers, horse and carts, orange juice stalls and balcony drinks overlooking the hustle and bustle and watch it transform in the evening with story tellers, music, food stalls. My words do not sum up how magical and magnifcient this square is.

I should think that the Arab spring is threatening here. Hence the lack of enforcement by the authorities. Avoid
