Place Jemaa El Fna is the main square in the city of Marrakech. Its a great place to watch some Moroccans charm snakes or sit down and get a sleeve full of Henna. The whole area is bustling with vendors offering clothing, shoes, henna, snakes, animals, spices etc... You wont miss it because it is the main center of Marrakech and at night it gets so packed with people that you will need to hold hands not to loose a family member. Check our our video of Jemaa El Fna!
