“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

The gate was ornamentally built to examplify the real Moroccan and Andalusian architectures. We enjoyed our mint tea in a cafe overlooking the gate.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

The so famous gate was nothing more than a great disapppoinment, hard to find and nothig special. The best view is from far away of the gate. The closer you get, the uglier it is.

“Colorful handiwork”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Fez is the city of gates afterall, so you will definitely come across a few here and there. Just a quick photo op and continue with your journey. But i must say, the mosaic is handcrafted so can you imagine the amount of time and effort it took to piece it together!?

“Not just a pretty gate!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Of course, every old city in Morocco has beautiful gates and I'm always impressed at their size, condition and beauty. But here's the deal, not only are these a thing of beauty BUT they are important land marks. SO pay attention to where the gates are and when all else fails in terms of getting a taxi or directions, if you know what gate you are near, just ask to go to that gate. I wasted lots of time trying to get a taxi or directions to specific locations when this was MUCH easier!!

“Beautiful-”

History at it's very best...
These gates are outrageously beautiful! The detailed tile work is colorful, intricate and breathtaking...
