    Please avoid dealing with anybody who is doing business with animals. They torture horses, apes, snakes, turtels, etc...

    Ignore the aggressive merchants and sit at the stalls where everybody speaks Arabic. Also try to avoid later at night and less crowded stalls where food has been stagnating.

    The real Moroccan Marrakech experience. Even if you're not comfortable eating there & worry a lot about hygiene, it's still a must see & explore! Usually very filled with tourists from all around!

    Possible the best square in all of Marrakech

    Nassir · May 7
  • Murat

    Open square for anything related to city; food, snake talkers, acrobats, horse carriages. Very crowded in the evening. People are a bit aggressive even for a tip. Be careful with your belongings.

    Snake charmers, henna artists by day - cool at night - incense, spices, food stalls are crazy busy, music, storytellers, drummers. Watch your bags. Henna ladies are very persistent!

  • Mark F.

    Worth seeing at night but be warned: people are very very very aggressive and persistent with tourists. Very different vibe during the day.

    Marrakech’s bustling centrepiece. It’s easy to be overwhelmed, but embrace the craziness of it by eating at the pop-up market, engaging with the snake charmers and haggling with hawkers. Read more

    If u didn't come here for chaos you're in the wrong place. It's brilliant. The touts are good humored, do the same. Know the stall u want. We liked 31, 1, and 14. Happy hour at La Salama all night!

    Snake charmers, dancers, live music, open markets, and lots of food. This place has it all and it's a lot of fun. Be prepared to have a thicker skin as people will try to sell you everything.

    Ignore the people with snakes or henna. You'll lose a lot of money for nothing.

  • Peter v.

    Great hangout for both locals and tourist. Pick your own food stall and don't get distracted by the many hustlers. The orange juice is a scam with lots of water and refined sugar.

    Try to visit day and night, awsome!

    Stand #114 they are really nice! The food is very good but I suspect it is the same in every stall

    Let yourself go, eat, prices are all the same. Just give them a hard NO if you dont agree. Remember you choose what you pay for picture or snake, they pretend to be angry but thats all, just walk away

    This place is crazy - snakes - monkeys - eagles - beggars & junk salesmen all haggling for your attention. Don't stand in the same place for too long
