Niche Market in La Antigua Guatemala

Empty Cemetery Niches

No, I don’t think you were thinking about this niche market. Although these kind of niches are the origin for the concept of niche market. Well, the play on words may not work completely in English as it does in Spanish. Nicho is the Spanish term for niche and it applies to the market place, to an architectural recess, to a hollow, crack, crevice, or foothold, and from there to the hollow structure pictured above to receive the dead.

What do you call these hollow boxes in your part of town?
