This square, in the centre of the souks, is surrounded by small berber pharmacies/ apothecaries, and carpet stalls.
Whilst in the centre, local women sell herbal remedies, raffia hats and bags, amongst cheap plastic trinkets etc.

It's quite a lively place, with plenty of local colour.

For the squeamish/animal lovers, please be aware that some of the stalls will have animals or animal parts on display (live iguanas or tiny terrapins- animal pelts, reptile skins, feathers etc) which are used in their potions and medicines etc!

Address: Place Rahba Qedima, The Souks, Marrakesh.
Directions: From Djemma el Fnaa, head up Rue Souk Smarrine, before this lane forks, a narrow passage should lead you into this square
