Jemaa el-Fna

Morocco, Places

In Marrarkech, Morocco there is no place as must see as Jemaa el-Fna. This is a place I’ve become more familiar with in my two visits to Morocco. Here I’ve been lost, stranded, had snakes wrapped around me and monkeys thrown on me. Here is a place of absolute chaos, often in the best of ways.

During the daytime in Jemaa el-Fna, you’ll come across merchants selling souvenirs, snake charmers, monkey trainers, and juice sellers.  As the day wears on, story tellers and musicians begin to appears, and by dark, the square is filled with local street food vendors. There’s a little something for everyone in Marrakech’s most famous attraction.

This photo was taken from one of the many rooftop restaurants surrounding Jemaa el-Fna, with one of the city’s many mosques in the background, just as dusk settled, and the food vendors began to take over the square.
