The Jemaa el-Fnaa is Morocco's main square and the essential part of the medina. Here, inhabitants and tourists gather both during the day and night to have something to eat, shop, or observe the various shows taking place.
It's hard to find the words to describe Jemaa. Exotic; absolutely. Confusing, probably. But when you come back home and your friends are asking to tell them something about your holiday, you likely start from the Jemaa el Fna.
We visited Marrakech in February and were very impressed with this big square, even there were not any fire eaters or cobras in this season. In the summer, Jemaa is undoubtedly even more exciting.
There are so many food stalls that it would be tough to choose the best. It WOULD, but "luckily," there are some thousands of very keen waiters who are trying to get you in. When you finally give up and just follow some waiter to his stall you'll notice that there is almost impossible to get any service because all the waiters are desperately trying to get the other new customers, and other and other.. And I think the food is not worthy of taking a risk to get some disease. We tried three different food stalls, and every one of them was a disappointment. Luckily we stay healthy.
Even if you have only one hour to explore in Marrakech, you can't pass Jemaa el Fna. It's something unforgettable.
