Place des Ferblantiers
  • Historical Tour Route

The Tinsmiths square is mid-way between the Bahia Palace and Palais El Badii, just a few minutes by foot from the riad. The square, called " Ksadria " in Arabic was named after the craftsmen working tinplate and metal whose workshops have been developing there for centuries . The square is also a link between the Jewish Mellah and the Arab neighborhoods of Marrakech,  and a must see. Today there is always a few workshops where you can admire the work of craftsmen. Pedestrian square, it remains a haven of tranquility in the south of the bustling Medina. Source: riad-chamali.com
