jemaa el fna

Stepping into the main square of Marrakech late at night (especially if this is your first touch with Moroccan culture, like mine was) is an experience that is very hard to forget. Literally thousands of people, tourists and locals alike, swarm the ancient square around dusk, looking for a meal, a drink, entertainment, good company, or just some trinket to buy. The numerous food vendors are full to the brim with tourists, while the locals gather in circles to sing or play strange games that I had never seen before. The plethora of colors, smells and sounds is overwhelming at first, but is definitely a sight to behold from above in one of the rooftop cafes around the square, especially at sundown.






Going down to the street level is no less exciting…
