Marrakech. Jemaa el Fna. The Jemaa el Fna.- can not say that Jemaa el Fna is a place in the European sense of the word. It is rather a large open space without any regular basis, with an impressive life. His name, however, has nothing to do with the almost incessant activity developed in its irregular surface. Your name could be translated as Assembly of the dead because until the arrival of the French in the early twentieth century, this place was the scene of public executions. Originally, this area was part of the palace of the Almoravid dynasty and was used for the realization of celebrations and military parades. After the arrival of the Almohads, the building was demolished and the square was like the great public space it is today. The activity just stops along all day. In the morning alternate gigs juices, henna tattoo artists, street dentists, water carriers or snake charmers.
