Built in 1672-1674, El Hedim Square faces Bab el-Mansour and was commissioned by Moulay Ismail as the square for royal announcements and public executions. There is a fresh produce market within the square and countless shops sell handicrafts and all sorts of trinkets. Its edges are lined with cafes, shops, and restaurants, and this vibrant market comes alive with musicians and street dancers. Get a glimpse of local life as you watch hawkers, promenading families, traditional medicine doctors, and kids playing in the streets.

El Hedim Square Reviews
Naprzeciwko bramy Bab el-Mansour jest plac na którym ustawione są stoiska z pięknymi glinianymi naczyniami. Jest tu ogromna różnorodność ceramiki, warto tu coś kupić , bo ceny są bardzo umiarkowane. O... more »Opposite the gate of Bab el-Mansour is a square on which are set stands with beautiful clay vessels. There is a huge variety of ceramics, it is worth buying something, because the prices are very moderate. Next to it is a covered part with stalls, a lot of the stalls with Chinese. There is a tight and noisy, Moroccans are doing here daily shopping, especially the food: fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, spices, sweets and here rather there is nothing to enter.
Bella copia (rimpicciolita) della splendida Jemaa El-Fna di Marrakech, con il medesimo fascino e vivacità. more »Beautiful (small) copy of Marrakech's beautiful Jemaa El-Fna, with the same charm and vibrancy.
