I have been to and have lived in many Moslem countries and this is at the bottom of the list. It is difficult to get around or should I say find your way around . The sights are not spectacular and the locals are more interested in squeezing money out of you for nothing and sending you in the wrong... More

The ramparts go round the old city. There is 15km of them./ They are unremarkable. Bab Debagh - to get there you have to run the gauntlet of the tanneries (very smelly). is worth a look. It has chicanes so invaders could not run straight through.

The guidebook suggested we take a horse carriage to explore all the gates, which are all different, but I think it's not worth it. When you go in and out of Medina by taxi or on foot you'll see the gates anyway.

One of the charachteristics of Marrakesh which remained with me when I look back on me is the Ramparts or the fortifications. Encircling the City and in some cases inside the city it's self they stand as a permanent reminder to the visitor of the status of the City as a capital and Military enclave. Brights pink the walls have... More

You can't visit Marrakech without seeing at least part of the city ramparts. Enclosing the old city, the walls extend for 15km and have nineteen gates. We chose to walk the Southern Medina section taking in Bab Agnaou. Well worth the effort, especially if you are visiting the nearby attractions !

This is the most fabulous and a great city that I have visited, as in fairy tales, so different people, religion, food, smell all that needs to be felt and seen, can not be described in words.

Saw a picture of Bab Agnaou and was determined to see it. Is litearally across the road from the Saadian Tombs. You walk across the road near the big Tower on the corner and opposite is a little street which has two arched red gates next to each other at the end...go through them turn right and there it is!!...

There is not a great deal to say about the ramparts, except they look like they do in all the photos. Not something you would be amazed by, and definitely less than a tourist attraction. .
