Following the ancient walls of the city is very interesting. There is so much to see and you get a great feel for the diversity of the city. I would avoid the hottest prts of the day though and take plenty of water.

It was nice to leave the hectic city, souks and traffic, and walk out the gates and see the pink walls outside the medina. It is nice to walk from one gate to another outside the city walls and great some great photos of the Atlas mountains

Once we have exhausted ourselves in the souks it is a nice change to walk out the gates and see the pink walls outside the medina. We would say it is not a stand alone attraction, however good to see when you do a full days of adventuring.

Take the time and walk form the Royal Palace along the Walls of Marrakesh it will not take 1/2 hour to the next great door. Best time is in the morning or evening, the colours brighten up. Wonderfull Scenes to tkae photos with the Atlas Mountains in Background. Along the walls are Orange Plantations - great smell. Sit a while... More

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 !
