Water Sellers in Jemaa al Fnaa

There are many sights and sounds in the vibrant Jemaa al Fnaa, the main square in Marrakech Morocco. One of the more curious is the sights of brightly dressed men moving throught the crowds (often ringing bells or callingout) carrying goat skin bags of water and brass cups.

The explanation is that they are water sellers, and originally their function was just that, selling drinking water the locals.  Today they make their living charging a few dirhams for posing for tourist photographs.

If you are planning to visit Marrakech our atmospheric traditional Riads in the heart of the Medina are a fantastic base from which to explore. Reserve Riad accommodation today!
