One of the many babs

One of the entrances to the old city of fes. Just inside the old walls at this gate you will find restaurants that serve good Moroccan food.

It's just a nice gate. That's all. There isn't much more I can say about it. It's not worth a long walk.

Another bab in another city. Still pretty, nice for a photo moment, and free. Easy to find since you pass this to get to the medina.

Pretty gate which is worthy of a photograph or two. If you position it correctly you can see two mosque towers through the gate which looks nice!

Great, lively place, one of the doors to the medina of Fes. Departing from Bab Boujloud two main streets cross the Medina, which is a great help finding your way in the labiyinth of old Fes

The approach to the famous blue gate Bab Boujloud from the main highway Abu Bakr Ibn al Arabi is through Bab Mahrouk, opposite the cemetery of the same name, which then leads on to the main square Place Boujloud, alternatively, red Petit taxis arrive at the rank beside the gate from the new city and railway station.

It's not a bad landmark for easily lost tourists, but I was less impressed with this gate than I thought I would be. When you learn that French imperialists built it only a 100 years ago, and all around you there are things that date back thousands of years, it's not such a big deal. The Blue Gate is only... More

So many restaurants here to view the mayhem from their balconies. View the street traders or just watch the cultures unfold before you. Sit in the cafe outside the gates and watch the world go by.
