This is the fast beating heart of the Medina. In the early morning you can have freshly squeezed orange juice from the carts. During the day you have typically tourist attractions avialable, like snake charmers, monkeys, men dressed in traditional outfits, etc Make sure you agree a price with them for the pictures and videos before you start recording. You have to haggle nearly everywhere in the Medina. In the evening the place is full of story tellers and you can have something to eat at the food stalls. Be picky as there are lots of them. It's good to ask at your Riad which ones are the best. The stalls are cheap but you have to tip.

This place is really full of life, but at night it is really crazy.... Entertainment, stalls, food..

Before entering the square, it is better to be patient and resist the attacks of the aggressive vendors. It is better not ask anything, Moroccans always will offer you guides to places of friends and then receive a hard sell.

It wasn't our kind of 'thing'. Too busy with Tourists - I know we are all Tourists, the ambience wasn't quite what we expected, the Cafes around this place were not very charming - this is our experience which doesn't mean others like that place
