    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 a small pedestrian only - means rather quiet - square officially belonging to the Jewish ‘Mellah’ quarter of Marrakech. Its name can de translated as ‘tinsmiths square’ and the square with its palm trees is indeed surrounded by shops and workshops, where craftsmen are busy making new and more lanterns; most of them in traditional Moroccan style.

    Just north of the court - halfway on the way to Bahia palace - is the 'Sagha', a jeweller’s souk, but during our visit most of the shops were closed. Also nearby is a covered market - Souk el-Kheir - with a lot of food stalls, also selling chickens and other small stock. The stench inside the market was terrible and we had to ‘flee’ after a very short visit.

    Qzadria Square has a couple of cafés/bars and is a nice place for a drink or a lunch. It is not as overcrowded and touristy as Jemaa El Fna.

    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.
