Djemaa el-Fna square, world heritage

Djemaa el-Fna is a square and market place in Marrakesh's medina quarter (old city). It is the heart of Marrakech and the physical and metaphysical center. Slowly the Djemaa el Fna starts to bustle with storytellers, musicians, healers, magicians, peddlers, Chleu (dancing boys) and sellers of traditional medicine.

 

During the day, the square has numerous stalls, most of which sell fresh fruit juice, water and fruit [the photo]. The snack stalls and relaxed atmosphere makes it hard to believe that at night there is almost no place to stand as the Djemaa el Fna fills up to capacity.

 

Press L and F11 for view large on black - recommended
