The Square

Lots of stuff that catches the eye. Monkeys, snake charmers. Every one is out to get your money, smile and walk away.

It is very colourful with carpet stalls , knitted hat stands , tortoises & iguanas in cages , a nice clean café with prices marked up & Wifi . Toilets and... More

Wandering around, we came upon a small area where it was much quieter and we bought pink olives and spicy olives here.

Rahba sq Is the most beautiful sq in Marrakech with its traditional hand crafted baskets and vibrant colours. It is a lot calmer than the Jemaa al Fna square but still has a gorgeous, laid back atmosphere. It is encircled by great cafes, including the picturesque Cafe Des Epices and wonderful shops selling herbal hair and beauty products. And don't... More

Whats not to like? its a meeting place for everyone with fruit juice vendors competing with anything else you might need. Great popup restaurants at night and eating there is an experience with great fresh local food well cooked.

The usual hustle and bustle of the Medina. Got some Berber knitted hats that were excellent value for money.

Inevitably you will bet lost within Marrakech's mesmerising maze of alleyways and undoubtedly will stumble into the Rahba Kedima Square. The square is a bustling hive of activity but feels "commercial" compared to some of the smaller squares and markets that you will encounter while trying to find your to or from somewhere else! The square however does have a... More

One of the squares in Marrakesh where you can buy local produce including spices and olives. Not quite as hectic as some of the other ares of the souks. Interesting to haggle for some spices.
