    Places des Ferblantiers

    by keeweechic Written Feb 20, 2009

    The Places des Ferblantiers is quite close to the Bahia Palace. Part of it is quite a nice rose garden. The square is known as the tinsmiths square and was originally called Place de Mellah and was part of the old Jewish marketplace. In the market you will see lantern makers in their workshops crafting their products.

    The Qzadria Square is an attractive, rose coloured pedestrian square located in the Mellah district, just north of the Palais Badii. It is also known as Place des Ferblantiers - the tin-workers souq.

    Surrounding the square are numerous shops, each with their own workshops. Here you can see the craftsmen cutting and hammering sheets of tin to make the pretty lanterns, candle holders and other items. A great place if you want to buy direct from the maker.

    There are also some restaurants and cafes on the square, making it a good place for a break during your Mellah exploration.

    Place qzadria , also Place des Ferblantiers
    is in the heart of the Mellah - the old Jewish
    quarter. It is a court with palm trees surrounded
    by craftsman ateliers. They are working outside ,
    cutting glass , making complex paterns.
    Tinsmiths are making lamps and typical
    moroccan things.

    The more posh shop in the corner even works
    by order. You choose a design , a color and have
    it shipped to Europe. We were very tempted.
