“This is the Heart of Marrakech!”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

I have no idea how many people are there every night but it seemed like thousands. Fortunately it is a big square and everyone was enjoying themselves without any problems. Do eat at one of the stalls there.

“Unmissable”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

You have to see this place - both by day and by night. The famous arrival of the food vendors at dusk is great - the food less so. The drummers and singers are exciting and the snake charmers strangely disturbing. Be prepared to pay for everything you look at

“Unique experience”
Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

An absolute must visit, yes it is dirty, crowded and smelly but that is all part of the experience of being in a very unique City! You see things here you would never see anywhere else! From snake charmers to stalls with hundreds of second hand teeth! A definite must-do in Marrakech!
