No trip to Marrakech is complete without a visit to the medina (old city). During the day, wander the labyrinthine souqs (markets) and at night, head into the main square, Djemma el Fna.
As dusk descends, the square is transformed into a frenzy of sights and sounds. Dozens of carts turn the open space into rows of bustling eateries, while story-tellers, street performers and snake charmers pick an available spot and build their own small crowds.
You’ll feel every bit like you’re in Morocco as you walk through the smoky aisles being beckoned into each passing stall. Don’t be put off by the fact that this is street food. Without a doubt it’s the tastiest, cheapest and most highly turned-over fare on offer.
See something you like? Take a seat and your pick from the menu, or just point to what others are having. My most favorite place in all of Morocco, do not leave without spending at least one night soaking up the atmosphere of this mesmerizing square.
