This gate was built in the 12th century. A bird market is held here on Friday mornings, outside the walls. Just inside the gate is a square with a large fountain, the Bab Guissa mosque and the medersa which is still in use today. The air is scented with cedarwood from the large number of carpentry workshops in the area.
