- Place el-Hedim Medina
Lonely Planet review for Bab el-Mansour
The focus of Place el-Hedim is the huge gate of Bab el-Mansour, the grandest of all imperial Moroccan gateways. The gate is well preserved with lavish (if faded) zellij and inscriptions across the top. It was completed by Moulay Ismail's son, Moulay Abdallah, in 1732. You can't walk through the bab itself - which is opened only on grand occasions - but instead have to make do with a side gate to the left.
