Chrob ou Chouf Fountain


Marrakesh's medina is dotted with public water fountains, but the Chrob ou Chouf ('Drink or Look') fountain still holds on to shreds of former finery with its intricately carved cedar-wood lintel. Unlike many others, the fountain is still used and you'll likely see passing pedestrians stopping for a quick drink as you admire the artistry.
