After being in Marrakech, this is much better place and people seem good too. Shop keepers are not as forceful as Marrakech and their prices are reasonable. Environment is very relaxed. Some of the shops had fixed prices and don't bargain at all. I would...More

This area is fairly large but not all that exciting. As the first Medina we visited in Morocco, we nonetheless enjoyed the sights - tight lanes, busy with lots of people and activity, a Grand Mosque, lots of little shops, food, an old Jewish Quarter,...More

Typical of the Medinas I have seen - crowded, noisy, but full of life and bustling with merchants of all types. I felt very safe and wandered for about an hour. Well worth a visit.
