The mosiac and majesty of this gate sets it apart from all the other gates of Fes ... but even then the locals portray it as the gates of heaven, and it is not that! Check it out, but you won't be there for long. However, it's a great landmark for navigation as so many signs point to it, and... More

This was our starting point into the Medina and easily identifiable and somewhere everyone knows especially taxi drivers. We were staying at the opposite end so made this our starting point and made our way along both the major and the minor routes on two separate occasions so as not to miss anything . Well photographed gateway to the medina... More

The best gateway to the medina. Around the gate high concentration of restaurants and night markets. The gate is heart of medina.

There is not much to see here. It was really just a gateway to the Fez medina. Don't waste too much time. Take some photos and move on.

I traveled throughout Morocco and loved it mostly, even though I was traveling during Ramadan; everything was closed, no food for sale, no restaurants, no beer, no wine!. Unfortunately, Fes was the worst city I visted; a real tourist trap, a relativelly small city with the problems of the big city, and with what tourism does to a place of... More

My husband grew up in the Fez medina and his heart seems centred at this gate. He kissed it when he left and it is nearly the first place he returns when visiting. All his friends, family, and memories are here. So, it has a magical quality for me. Sit at a cafe and sip mint tea - you will... More

It is one of the most famous giant doors of the historical medina. It is very central to start exploring and diving into the magnificent medina.
