“Do it by horse carriage in the moonlight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

If you are lucy enough to be there during the full moon take a carriage ride along the ramparts late at night. Romantic and dreamy.

“An enjoyable walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Any walk in Marrakech is fun, just soaking up the atmosphere but walking along the walls - even just a part of them - has added interest. You are bound to see other interesting things whichever bit you take. A bit like the M25, there is no real start or finish but they did buldoze through where Avenue Mohammad V runs to the square, so it's as good a place as any to start.

“Impressive Medieval walls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Encircling the ancient medina, these ramparts measure some 10 miles. Built from mud and stones and straw, they have withstood centuries of attack. They are regularly repaired, so look pretty good.

“Here since the Middle Ages”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

The older parts of the ramparts date back to the 12th century, built to defend Marrakech. The walls were later extended. Even nowadays the old city wall encircles the whole medina and is about 10 miles long. The ramparts are made of clay and chalk and because of the local materials used they have that reddish/pink colour. You can only observe the walls or walk around them, you cannot go on them.
