  1. GO FOR A TOUR IN JEMAA EL FNA

Located in the heart of the Medina, the Djema-el-Fna square is both the geographic center of Marrakech and the essential socio-cultural meeting place of the city.

It is dominated by the minaret of the Quessabine mosque, between the souk and the Kotoubia minaret.

The place Djema-el-Fna has not always been the lively and warm place it is today.

Indeed, its name in Arabic means “assembly of the dead”, it was the place of the strike where the criminals were executed and their heads nailed to the walls and the faces of the passers-by.

This is where you get to the souks with its small oars lined with small scales, public publics, marabouts, sellers of books and arrangers of teeth.

Around the square, you will have access to various out-of-the-ordinary services such as clairvoyant consultations or magic recipes.

During the day, snake charmers, henna tattoo artists or song-owners who use photos with their pets rub elbows with jugglers, musicians and acrobats. We even organize amateur boxing matches.

Do not hesitate to climb on one of the many terraces lining the square to isolate you a few moments of this teeming life, to taste gas horns accompanied by a mint tea.

One of the best times to admire the place from these ledges is when the sun begins to set, and where activities activate their stoves to prepare the evening meal.

The intoxicating smoke, the tamtams, and the loupiotes that illuminate the sentry boxes lend themselves very well to the ritual photo.

At night, the place deserted by salt restaurants is invaded by street restaurants that prepare delicious Moroccan dishes.

In the evenings, you can enjoy traditional, unpretentious meals at unbeatable prices.

6) Moroccan hammam

The hammam, hot water or that spreads heat or hot spring in Arabic, can be private or public. When it is public, it consists of three or four rooms of different temperature on the principle of the Roman baths that the Arabs discovered during the conquests in Syria. The Arabs immediately adopted these “hot water” rituals because they only washed in cold water. The religious saw in the steam bath a real “process” of purification allowing obligatory ablutions before each prayer. The hammam took on a religious significance and quickly became an annex to the mosque and the essential place of the social and religious life of Muslims. The practice of the hammam did not begin to develop until the beginning of the 7th century AD when the prophet Mohammed, conquered, made the apology. He was convinced that the heat of the hammam increased fertility, and thus facilitated the reproduction of believers.
