Heart of Marrakech with acrobats and jugglers, snake charmers, boxers, musicians, fresh juice and food sellers galore!
Place Djemaa el Fna
The huge open space of Djemaa el Fna is the heart of the old city, or Medina, where acrobats and jugglers, snake charmers, beggars, boxers, musicians, fresh juice and food sellers all compete for your attention - and a few dirhams in the process. During the day it is a fantastic sight, but at sunset it comes into a world of its own - buzzing with atmosphere and life.
At night take a seat in one of the restaurants that overlook the square and watch the scene unfold. With numerous sounds from musicians and singers, and thousands of tiny white lights illuminating swirling smoke that rises from the food stalls, you can expect a real feast on your senses!
