As the train approaches Marrakech, we get closer – for ourselves – to discovering other aspects of Moroccan culture. Once we arrive, we will stretch our legs directly by exploring Jemaa el Fna, which is a square and market in the old medina of Marrakech.
The origin of its name is unclear because some narrations claim that Jemaa el Fna is the place where the sultans used to execute their enemies, while other narrations suggested that the name of the place may literally mean “The mosque at the end of the world”; a name that has a religious connotation. Nowadays, the place attracts many Moroccans and tourists for offering entertainment and bringing together different facades of Moroccan cultures.
