Djemaa el Fna - Marrakesh.

Djemaa el Fna (Arabic: جامع الفناء jāmiʻ al-fanāʼ) is a square and market place in Marrakesh's medina quarter (old city). The origin of its name remains unknown : it means Assembly of the dead in Arabic, but as the word djemaa also means mosque in Arabic, it could also mean place of the vanished mosque, in reference to a destroyed Almoravid mosque.
