Built in the eleventh century, the Jemaa el Fna has become a symbol of Marrakesh and is protected under the artistic heritage of Morocco. It offers a unique concentration of food, ancient traditions, such as the tales of storytellers, traditional medicine, various forms of entertainment as well as commercial activities.
By 10am, the daily performance is under way. Snake charmers blast oboes to calm hissing cobras; henna tattoo artists beckon to passers by; water-sellers in fringed hats clang brass cups together, hoping to drive people to drink.
Everywhere you look you’ll see drama in action.
The show doesn’t peak until shadows fall and hundreds of chefs arrive with grills in tow.
It’s a sensory experience you wont want to miss.
