Worth quickly going in the evening
Nov 2020
I recommend crossing the place on your way to a restaurant or back to you hotel in the late afternoon early evening. it is crowded but it is not really a tourist place even though it has become a tourist attraction. Beware of your stomach if you want to eat there. i would stick to eating with the eyes !

Overwhelmingly awesome
Jul 2020 • Solo
It is unique and awesome and worth all the hype. Don’t miss a chance to visit one of the great open air markets of the world. The sights and smells are overwhelming. The street food is heavenly, fresh fruit juices, sweets, tajines, and tons of roasted stuff… all while listening to some amazing music and all the spectacle.

Covid affected
May 2021 • Couples
Sadly the Covid situation has meant that the square has limited appeal since there are few tourists. The usual “buzz” with the snake charmers etc is simply not happening at the moment. Also an 8pm curfew means the food stalls in the evening are very limited. Good start point for the Médina though.

The Heartbeat of Marrakech
Jan 2021
The Jemaa el-Fnaa is the epicenter of Marrakech. Whenever you are in the medina and lost, just ask where the Jemaa is. We visited over Christmas/New Year's and things were pleasantly calm. Food stalls and small restaurants were open, even though there was a curfew/no restaurant ban on.

Go to the Jemaa and venture out in different directions. The medina is the heartbeat of the city where we wandered for 16 days, shopping, talking, having tea, and visiting the occasional museum that was open.

Go!

Assembly of the dead!
Feb 2020 • Family
Long ago this square used to be the execution point of the city. Hence it is still called Djemma el-F’nâ, which literally means the Assembly of the Dead. These days with the music, astrologers, magicians, snake charmers, dancers, acrobats, monkey handlers and persistent foot paddlers no spirits would dare to assemble here. This halqa or street theatre is UNESCO acclaimed madcap. During the day the square is somewhat calm but as the sunsets things start pumping up. The restaurants set outside stalls, the performers start entertaining and the crowds start converging. Just be careful of the pickpockets and the traditionally garbed performers who will pester you for tips.

Amazing place
Feb 2020 • Friends
How to describe something that is indescriptible. A unique place, a happy messy, joyful colorful combination of folkloric music shows, traditional dancers, street food stalls, cheap souvenir shops, snake charmers and fortune tellers, packed with tourists and locals. Don’t hesitate to wander and get lost in the narrow streets of the souk around the square: a feast for the senses. I think I actually found a word to describe this incredible place: exoticism!
