Bab Agnaou, constructed in the 12th century by the Almohad Sultan Yaqub al-Mansour, is the innermost and most ornate of the nineteen gates in Marrakech, Morocco. Encompassing the inner city known as ... Read more
the royal kasbah, the gate itself is a monument to engineering and artistry. Intricately emblazoned with Maghrebi cursive Kufic writings and floral designs, the blue-and-ochre facade is made of Jbel Gueliz sandstone. The walls contain the kasbah mosque El-Mansouri, the Saadian tombs, and El Badi Palace, and its location in south eastern Marrakech is adjacent to countless other historical sites.

Probably my favorite of all Marrakech's city gates. A word to the wise: Take care as you are taking pictures and otherwise admiring it. Horse, taxi or human, the traffic that passes here will not stop for you, and will trample you!

Una delle porte della Medina più belle e maestose in assoluto. Capiterà sicuramente di vederla passeggiando nella zona meridionale della Medina di Marrakesh. Questa porta dà ingresso alla Kasbah la cittadella reale. E' molto vicina alle Tombe Sadiane e alla Moschea Kasbah. L'ornamento floreale che compone la facciata di questo ingresso è incorniciato da alcuni pannelli intagliati con iscrizioni del Corano.
