Jemaa El-Fna Square

Marrakech

Jemaa el Fna Square is the essence of Marrakech, without doubt. It is impossible to imagine visiting the city without stopping in this vibrant square. The square is an open theatre for fun and an opportunity for the audience to go back to history through storytellers and musicians.
The square is surrounded with shops offering visitors an excellent product from the Marrakesh traditional industry, especially Moroccan dresses, jewelry, and locally made carpets.
Today, the Jemaa el Fna is the engine of Marrakech economy and recreation. Historically, it has been a center for the organization of the army and protection of the state alongside the Koutoubia mosque. Historians refer to the el Fna Square to the space of the great mosque in the Saadian state.
Since 2002, UNESCO has considered the Jemaa El Fna square an oral heritage that must be preserved as a result of its cultural and civilizational presence throughout history and its continued leadership in the storytelling and arts.
