There are many gates in Morocco, this was not the largest, the most ornate, the most beautiful, the most historical, or the most interesting. I wouldn't make a long trip to see it, but it fits well into a longer itinerary.

Well preserved gate, overlooking the main square. Nice, but once seen easily forgotten. If in the area worth seeing, but not for a special trip.

Was disappointed, it is a long drive to visit what is just a decorative gate. I think some of the other gates on our trip to Morocco were more impressive. We did however have a lovely meal at the terrace restaurant overlooking the gate.

While there are some beautiful elements to the gate, marble columns from Volubilis and zellij tiles, this landmark is something to see only in you are in the area.

This is a gate, a very big gate, it is pretty and nice to look at. If you really like gates you will enjoy this gate. Not as excited as some of the other reviewers. We were in Meknes and we saw the gate, it is beautiful and imposing, but was not open. Dont go to Meknes for the gate, it was only after I went to write a review I found out about it being the biggest in Morocco, and it didnt change my opinion on the gate. Just to clarify I dont usually use the word gate this often.
