Could Marrakech be itself without Djemaa el-Fna (alternative spelling: Jemaa el-Fna) square? This huge contemporary square located in the center of the Medina is not only the biggest tourist attraction of the city but also the liveliest. In the early afternoon, tourists can take pictures of snake charmers and the water-carriers wearing traditional costumes (don't forget the tip). Then the dancers, musicians, storytellers, acrobats, magicians, and even plant-medicine men come to light up the square. At dusk, food stands overrun the square and the air smells of Moroccan specialties. Festivities last late into the night. The square became a UNESCO Oral Heritage site in 2001. Even though the name means assembly of the deaths in Arabic, nothing is livelier than Djemaa el-Fna square. Try observing the animated square from a terrace of one of the coffeehouses that surround it while drinking a mint tea.
