There is always something going on day and night here from shopping to getting something to eat or drink from one of the many food and juice stalls; to listening to local musicians, watching acrobats and snake charmers perform their stunning specialties and soothsayers telling fortunes. Everything is magical in the Medina from the wonderful scents of the spices being sold or used to cook the foods sold here to the exuberant activities going on all around you. Les Bain des, Marrakech in the Medina has a lovely variety of Hammam and is the perfect place to relax with an argan oil massage or a soothing bath, complete with rose petals.
