The JEMAA EL FNAA square is one of the liveliest place in Merrakech as it is the main square and also accommodates an open theatre. During the day time the square remains sardined with snake charmers enchanting their snakes, tooth pullers, medicine men and many other vendors. By the evening the spirit of the square takes a whole new level as it starts building a pure carnival mood as many storytellers, musicians, acrobats and entertainers seek attention through their performances.

The square is also loaded with many cafés, restaurants and many vendors selling exciting things like carpets, shoes, leather shoes, scarves, jewelry, ceramics, and kilims. The visitors can take a stroll around these busy streets and visit the Jewish quarter, the spice bazaar or or just relax and chat at a café, enjoying a Moroccan meal. For a more relaxing environment one can climb onto the rooftop terrace and dine in Café du Grand Balcon to enjoy the panoramic views of the square. Don’t forget to bargain and beware of the pickpockets & thugs in the market.

The Jemma El- Fnaa Square remains buzzing day & nights, but the most exciting hours are 9:00am to 1:00am, or a little later during Ramadan.

Location: Locality Djemaa El-Fna, Central square at entrance to market, Place Jemaa El Fna, Rue El Ksour, Marrakesh 40000, Morocco.

How to reach: The nearest train station is the Koutoubia at Avenue Mohammed V, Merrakech and it is just 10 minutes away from the square. "
