Jemaa el-Fnaa

Jamaa el Fna is a square and market place in Marrakesh's medina quarter (old city). The origin of its name is unclear: Jemaa means "congregational mosque" in Arabic, probably referring to a destroyed Almoravid mosque. "Fanâʼ" or "finâ'" can mean "death" or "a courtyard, space in front of a building. " Thus, one meaning could be "The mosque or assembly of death," or "The Mosque at the End of the World".
