  • This square is very beautiful and listed under UNESCO. Many tourists visit it because it’s extraordinary charm, unique and must see. Authentic street vendors, magicians, craftsmen, henna tattoos, very nice to sit on one of the terraces above the square. Some vendors may charge for any taken photo especially snake charmers and monkey owners.
  • Visiting Jemaa EL-Fna is like spending some moments in a fairy tale. It is not only a famous and unique sightseeing, it's more than that, it's an idea, a dream, the spirit of a millennium city and the imprint of its historical richness. Spend rare moments strolling between food stalls , tasting traditional local dishes or attending theatrical events performed by local artists , it's worth it .
