  • This is a bustling place at night, so full of atmosphere and smells. There are African bands, storytellers, lots of food places and many many stalls with oranges piled high. We also had a caleche ride through the Jewish quarter ending in the square. So much more to see when the souk is quiet. A must do if in Marrakech.
