We had a horse ride around the walls of the Media and frankly even if it's not very typical, it was romantic.

While waiting for the crowds to get going on the Jmaa try walking along the outside of the city wall as the sun sets. You don’t have to go far along it to get the idea, it’s a long dirt wall full of pigeon nest-holes that looks pretty and red in the afternoon light.

We took a drive around the walls in the early evening when there was less traffic. The amazing thing is how long they have lasted and the length of the walls.

The walls are an impressive feature of Marrakech. There is a lot of history surrounding them and it's really nice to get one of the horse drawn carriages around the outside

Ancient history, I read a bit about them before going, which made them more interesting when we got there. Good as a fleeting glimpse!

The walls were later extended. Even nowadays the old city wall encircles the whole medina and is about 10 miles long.

Just arrived in Jemaa el Fna Square, we bought a ride on a calash ("calèche" in French) to get our first idea about what Marrakech was like. It was a very funny experience which brought us to the main ramparts of the city wall. Particularly pay attention to the main door, on whose two pillars beautiful storks put their nests.

Marrakech and the very special color of its walls is so chic and authentic. Walking around the wall was quite interesting.
