Travel to Morocco: Marrakech: The Medina or Old City: Photo 10
The central element of the entire medina, oddly enough, is this large open space, an irregular not to say formless polygon called the Place Jemaa el Fna, the name--by one reading, "the place of the vanished mosque"--possibly hinting at a long-gone Almoravid building. Comparatively deserted in the daytime, the Place is seriously crowded at night. At the far side, the short minaret of the Quessabine Mosque marks the entrance to a warren of markets.
