“7 gates of fes at the royal palace”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

The gates all have their own archeture, and are named after the days of the week. Wednesdwy the middle door is considered to be lucky if you touch the golden knob!

“The name says it all: They're gates”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2010

If you want to see big, traditional Moroccan arches & city gates, Fes is a perfect place...You know you're in Morocco when you see these. The gates look great.

One probably won't spend TOO much time admiring though. You'll say, "Ooh, cool gate", take a few pictures and pass thru.

There are more interesting sights around.
