Taroudant, Morocco- Adioso featured Jamaa el Fna square in Marrakesh among the 10 best places around the world for “feasting, shopping and people watching to your heart’s delight.”
Ranked third most beautiful square worldwide in a rating made by travel website Lonely Planet last year, the square is featured by the travel-lovers app Adioso as the second best place for spending a wonderful night in “open-air food stalls, snake charmers and a healthy dose of chaos.”
Djemaa el Fna is a high-touristic square in Marrakesh that draws more than a million visitors who come to attend the lively shows provided by the snake charmers, monkey trainers, storytellers, musicians and other popular artists from early evening until the call for dawn prayer.
Along with folklore activities, the square provides various tasty meals cooked and served in the open air.
The square contains about a hundred food stalls arranged in parallel lines serving a variety of Moroccan cuisine like tagine,roasted meat, kebabs, couscous, soup and other delicious meals that can be eaten at nearby wooden tables on the square for reasonable prices.
Ranked by VirtualTourist.com as the 4th city among “Top Ten Best Street Food Cities,” the quality of food in Jemaa El Fna is guaranteed. The prices are varied according to the dish and its accessories, but overall the prices are affordable and reasonable.
Some food may seem very strange and more exotic fare like sheep’s testicle, escargots, steamed sheep’s head and spicy fried cow or sheep’s brain, but the taste is irresistibly delicious, offering a unique experience.
Founded by the Almoravids, a Moroccan Amazigh dynasty, in 1070-1072, Djemaa El-Fna square is one of Morocco’s most enchanting and diverse places, and one that has attracted tourists from all corners of the world.
