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. .

The wall and ramparts are very well maintained and well worth walking round to get a feel for the size of the old city. It is still possible to climb up on some I the old ramparts which give a good vantage point and a good photo opportunity.

The old city walls and gates are an interesting and free to view attraction, which are well worth seeing. The local government were undertaking work on parts of the wall when we visited. I understand some visitors do a full circuit of the walls in order to photograph every gate into the old town. We didn't do this as we... More

The walls of the Medina are fairly extensive and built in a rich red sandstone. The ramparts surround the old city and are penetrated by a number of gateways, the most impressive of which is Bab Agnaou on the western side and close to the Saadian Tombs. Great to see a little bit of the older history of the place.... More
