Cool to observe but you can't climb them easily. Still, this is part of what makes Marrakech a unique place.

Good way to check out the city. We went to the majorelle gardens, former home of yves st Laurent. For 40 minutes from the square at 300 D it's well worth the sight-see and give you some bearings on the city, new and old.

Inside the walls is the Medina. Old fascinating part of Marrakesh.Outside is Gueliz and other districts. These places could be anywhere in the world. All new swish buildings. Stick to the Medina.

These walls among the best preserved and most photogenic you will find in the Arab world. Don't miss the gates along the West walls and the markets just outside the walls.

The walls are old but they are in great condition. In the United States we don't have anything like them. The gates are amazing. The amount of labor that went into their creation staggers the mind. A must see!

Your first impression of old Marrakech are the enormous walls,gates and towers which encircle the the medina. You will by necessity enter the old city through one of the gates and they open to a maze of small streets and alleys which cut through the medina . It is a wondrous first 20-30 minutes as yo traverse these narrow walkways... More

The contrasted between the old and the new is impressive, the walls and gate are in great condition. Take time to go and visit the gates , very impressive up close.
