Terrible experience in this hotel and prices too high. Not enough staff even to clean up the room or to order a coffee. Absolutely not to suggest

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!!...

We walked the premier around the west heading all the way to the east side. The arch ways are very nice ornate and beautiful like everything. Got to see there military as they stand guard in multiple areas very nice guys just ask for the photo don't just assume you can take them.

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

It is the wall that surrounds the Medina, which is the old city. Their are beautiful gates, scattered along the wall. Not all the walls look the same. Different locations have different designs at the top. If you walk on the outside of them, when the sun is going down, the color of the wall just glows in its light.
