Although it's only an entrance, it's magnificent! I'd advise getting a guide to explain all the history, metal work and mosaics. Because it's so near a busy road, there were many other tourists like us admiring it making it impossible to get a reasonable photo...More

One of the many beautiful gates, easily the most popular=the most crowded. Too touristy for what it's worth. I invite you to explore and discover the other gates.

Not sure what to say - it is just a Big Gate - see my picture. There is nothing else to see here. Across the street there is a big open square with some restaurants and stalls selling Moroccan goods, spices, produce and lots of...More
