All of our Morocco tours include some time to experience this massive square in the medina of Marrakech. The square is recognized by UNESCO as a sanctuary of authentic local culture and in the midst of steaming food and fresh orange juice stalls, story tellers, dancers, musicians, acrobats, sellers of potions, magicians, tooth-pullers, henna artists, snake charmers, monkey guys, and vendors of all sorts do their thing. It’s relatively sleepy during the day, but after dark, the place churns with activity. For tourists, the square offers an intense dose of cultural submersion, either exhilarating or overwhelming, depending on one’s stimulant tolerance levels. But the square really belongs to the people of Marrakech, for whom it is a living time capsule of their home and heritage.
Can you name that site?
