UNESCO World Heritage-listed Jamaâ El Fna
Djemaa el-Fna square sits alongside Marrakech’s boisterous medina, and during the day suffers when compared to the lively souks nearby. But daytime is not the point of this place. An evening circuit of the square, when its in full swing, and it can seem like all human life is here: the music of snake charmers fills the air; medicine men sit, their exotic wares laid out in front; human pyramids; boxing matches; soothsayers; tattooists; musicians – the list goes on and on, and then on some more. The entertainment doesn’t stop - one of the joys of the square is that what you’ll see will vary from night to night, but it’ll always be eye-poppingly exciting, and quite unlike anywhere else you’ll ever visit. In the middle of the madness are food stalls serving up cheap and delicious grub. Fill up on the chaos, then on couscous.
