The Medina

The city’s historic area.

Djemaa El-Fna is the Medina’s central plaza. It is encircled by an infinite maze of souks (bazaars) and alleyways that encompass the whole Medina. Djemma El-Fna is a must-see due to the constant presence of snake charmers, acrobats, soothsayers, as well as musicians and food booths. At night, the area comes alive with people navigating their way to the unique aromas and interesting sights. As nightfall falls, the rush and bustle of activities continues. The unusual music becomes increasingly audible and captivating.

Additionally, the Medina is where you may stay in a Riad, a Moroccan home with an interior courtyard. The majority of windows face inward toward the central atrium. This kind of home is compatible with Islamic tradition since it makes no evident wealth statement outwardly and has no windows to gaze through. In juxtaposition to its unassuming façade, entering a Riad is like to uncovering an Aladdin’s Cave. They are excellent lodgings that provide an exclusive and soothing refuge.

Rue Bab Agnaou is located just south of the Djemaa El-Fna. A five-minute stroll will bring you to the iconic Bab Agnaou gateway to the Medina’s Kasbah neighborhood. Bab Agnaou’s rampart entry is by far the most spectacular of all medina rampart entrances.

In compared to the Derbs (streets) that surround the Djemaa El-Fna, the Kasbah has a more tranquil, less aggressive environment. It is also home to the historic El-Badi Palace and the Saadian Tombs. This naturally results in increased security, cleaner streets, and an air of exclusivity inside the medina. For travelers’ enjoyment, the Kasbah has its own little bazaars (Souikas), food stalls, restaurants, hotels, and riads.
