We visited this place first

This giant door is located in the center of the Medina. I recommend to walk or ask the taxi to drop you here for a visit of the medina.

But in Fes it is perhaps the most beautiful one, and the place to be, the place where the action is, including male prostitutes in the evening.

This was the closest gate we could walk to from our Riad to get out of the Medina. It was a beautiful gate near the fruit market.

This is a great spot to ask directions to as it is the most busy and popular entrance to the medina. It is easy to get a very cheap taxi to drop you there and then start your exploration. Don't worry about getting a guide. They will only take you on a tour of the shops where they get great... More

Of the dozen + gates which guard the famous Fes Medina, this is perhaps the most popular of the lot. Nothing to write home about besides that.

Don't be confused as you leave. The back of the blue gate is green. The ATM just outside the gate accepted my bankcard that other ATMs in the medina had declined. Lots of affordable restaurants just inside the gate or just a few steps down the Tala'a Seghira. "Colorful" market stands (goat heads with or without fur, live poultry, etc.)... More

This is one of the best areas in the Medina but the door itself did not impress us that much. The Medina is beautiful and has much more to offer.

It's quite easy to get lost in the old medina of Fes. Our hotel manager suggested we take a taxi to Bab Boujloud and enter from there. That way it's easier to stay oriented. Just keep going downhill on one of the main streets and eventually you end up close to the famous tanneries.

Basically its an entrance to the old madina. One of the so many gates. But this one is the main famous one.
