Bab Agnaou
Top 10 in Can't Miss Attractions

Address: Marrakech, Morocco

What people are saying:

An old gate in the Medina of Marrakech has not been refurbished, and it basically maintains its original flavor. You can see the traces of history carved on it. Inside the door is a narrow alley with no traffic, and outside is a busy road with sharp contrast.

Additional Information

Introduction

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 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.
