The Jama' al Fna, loosely translated to the Mosque of the Ruin, is anything but. This UNESCO heritage site is filled with snake charmers, dancers, scribes, food stalls and even some cheeky monkeys. The sites, smells and sounds are unlike any thing you have ever experienced. Smoke and sounds mingle together and the air seems to be blurred. You see locals and tourist rub shoulders while eating street cuisine and children fall asleep on shoulders while watching magicians.

From night to day
The Jama' al-Fna seems to change with the addition of the light. The snake charmers come out during the day and you can watch from a safe distance while sipping free squeezed orange juice at a juice stand.
