This is the most ornate of the entry gates in the Ramparts surrounding the Medina. Apart from its size and some carved inscriptions, nothing too special. Best viewed from across the road.

Be careful when crossing the wide street to enter the gate. The traffic is fast. Once inside the walkways are narrow. The area is historic with tombs, Mosque and a Palace. The gate faces south and is decorative. This is a worthy and impressive place...More
