The souk of Marrakech becomes a must visit by tourists to do purchases of typical products of the country. Streets littered with stalls form a maze in which Moroccans also do their daily shopping. It runs from the north of the Jamaa el Fna square, occupying dozens of streets, and here it is possible to buy food, clothing, crafts ... in stalls that are grouped by guilds.
