By day you can find all kinds of amazing people: from trainers of monkeys hanging onto to snake charmers, dentists through exposing his last parts removed.
In addition to the strange characters in Djemaa el Fnaa are also many stalls of orange juice, spices, mint and snails.
According toward evening, the square changes completely. By nightfall the stalls in the morning they disappear and filled with food stalls where you can dine, improvised musicians and performances of various kinds.

The square attracted dwellers from the surrounding desert and mountains to trade here, and stalls were raised in the square from early in its history. The square attracted tradesmen, snake charmers, dancing boys of the Chleuh Atlas tribe, and musicians playing pipes, tambourines and African drums.
