A visit to Meknes cant be accomplished without a stop by Bab Mansour. The workmanship is just stunning. The best thing to do is to cross the road and have a coffee at the terrace - while facing the gate and enjoying the sunset

There are beautiful gates all over Morocco. While this was pretty, I'm not sure I would rate it as the most beautiful.

nice main gate, wall goes on for awhile. Nice mini plaza across the street with some hawkers and wares. The market there is worth a walk through - and watch your step in the market. In middle of town, so easy to find/see.

We stopped in Minnesota on our way to Fez, and of course, had to see the gate. Workmanship was very impressive.

The gate is stunning. It is worth at least admiring for a bit. Afterwards, you can pop across the street to the market. It is a very relaxed atmosphere for some touristy shopping. Worth a visit

The main gate between the Imperial City and Meknes Medina. The gate was finished in 1732. Gate was closed when I visited and you use a side gate.

There was an art instillation for free when we visited. It is a must see in Meknes. It is right in front of the Lahdim square which is also a great stop.

My wife and his family members are the descendants of Moulay Ismail who was also the descendant of prophet Muhammad. Many Ismailis are still living in Meknes.
