My friend and I visited Meknes on a weekend trip. The tile on the door is beautiful and they had a little art gallery inside. If you’re patient you can get a photo of the door. Work stopping by to see.

It was the most beautiful gate we saw in 15 days of travel through Morocco. It gives access to the zone of the imperial city. It is located in a square that, at night, is the center of attractions of the city

For the end of 2018 we (Dutch family of 4, kids 14 and 18) chose to visit Morocco. Fly to Fez and hire a car to drive our way via Meknes and Ouzoud to Marrakech. We saw a lot of gates in Meknes, but this...More
