Jamaa el Fna is a square and market place in Marrakesh's medina quarter (old city). It remains the main square of Marrakesh, used by locals and tourists. Jamaâ El Fna is a destination for all magic and tells its storytellers, dancers, water sellers and snake charmers, the history of Morocco from yesterday and today while subduing its visitors by Its charm which begins in the morning and finds its height only in the evening.
There is nowhere in Morocco like the Jemaa el Fna Square: no place that so easily involves you and allows you to stay coming back for more. By day, most of the site is just an ample open space, where a handful of snakes charming bewitched their cobras with flutes, medical men display cures and Panaceous, and tooth-pullers, wielding fearsome claws, offering to wrest pain from the heads of people suffering from a toothache, trays of extracts attesting molars their skills. It ‘s only in the afternoon that the square really happens. At dusk, as in France and Spain, people go out for a walk early evening (especially in the street Bab Agnaou), and the place fills up little by little until it becomes a carnival all of the storytellers, acrobats, musicians and artists. Go down and you will soon be immersed in the ritual: wandering around, crouching in the midst of spectator circles, giving a dirham or two as your contribution.
