Jemaa el-Fnaa is a square in Marrakesh’s Medina (old city). It is one of the best known squares in Africa, being the main attraction for tourists in Marrakesh, and is the oldest square in Morocco.
On the square, and in the souks that starts right behind it, you can feel the mixture of traditionalism with modernism; you can see how old culture and methods mix with today’s society.

Not far from the square is the Koutoubia Mosque, which is the largest mosque in Marrakesh.
Virtually anything can be bought in the souks:
One important spot in the souks is this little passage. It is beautifully decorated and filled with pictures of King Mohammed VI and the Royal Family. And just some pictures to finish with 🙂 Do definitely visit the square and the souks if you come to Marrakesh as it is a unique experience! However, do not go into the souks by yourself — it is a real maze, where you can get lost in a blink of an eye. Take someone who knows the place with you.
