Djemaa el Fna is the epitome of exotic. The sights, sounds and smells of Arabic Africa assault your senses at every turn. Snake charmers, soothsayers, amateur pugilists, roaming musicians and water bearers alike wander the food labyrinth stalls of smoke and fire serving everything from snail soup to sheep head sandwiches.

Some snobby people write this place off as "touristy." I don't get it. Yes, of course, the place is crammed with tourists, because you can't go to Marrakech and skip the place, or even go anywhere without passing through it. But there are plenty of Moroccans here as well, and all the storytellers and snake charmers and just random weird people are doing their bits in Arabic, not in some pandering English-French mix. And it's a great place to see Moroccan families out and about.

This must be the most atmospheric town square on the planet. The sights, sounds and smells have to be experienced. It takes on a different, yet completely entrancing, personality after dark.

Insanity at it's finest! This is the heart of the city where you can see and breathe in all sorts of sights and smells. I was constantly surprised as each day we manages to have a different experience even though we kept coming to the same square. The transformation from day to night is completely different. During the day see street performers, snake charmers, odds and ends being sold, henna artists and the streets busy as can be. At night a large part of the square is turned into an open air restaurant. There are storytellers, comedians, games, musicians and of course henna ladies and plenty of people who want your money!

interesting face of Marakesh, if you wanna eat there ask for the prices ( ask for everything they often try to count everything extra) don't go if the tourists from Aggadir are in town - the prices grow more than 100%

You can't truly experience Marrakech without visiting here at least once. This is a beating heart of a main square which still manages to conjure up the exotic sights, sounds and smells of the region in one place. For the first time visitor - especially at night - it can feel overwhelming: from snake charmers and story tellers to fire eaters and men selling live tortoises. Aside from these feasts for the senses, the real attractions are the night time stalls selling inexpensive and delicious street food, the fresh juice sellers and the grand cafes which line the square, a perfect spot for a mint tea and some serious people watching.

Djemaa El-Fna is the highlight of my trip to Marrakech night with musicians, dancers, and story tellers packing this square at the heart of the medina. Scores of stalls sell a wide array of Moroccan fare, including seafood and lamb delicacies and sweet dates and freshly squeezed fruit juice. There are also sellers of incense, oils, and teas. Hung out with friends that I encountered on my trip to Morroco and had a blast.
