Bab Boujloud, Fes

#4 of 475 in Things to do in Fes
Take the picturesque entrance to the old quarter by passing through Bab Boujloud, a grand archway covered in blue mosaics. Built in 1913, the monumental gate was originally intended to provide protection for the medina; however, the advent of heavy artillery compromised its effectiveness, so it opted instead to intimidate with its attractiveness. The shimmering blue mosaic features floral patterns, geometric shapes, and calligraphy. Today, locals and tourists use this local landmark as a meeting place.

  • A good example of Arabic artwork. Beautiful gateway to the city. The cafes around it are a place where it is well worth having a tea.

  • To enter the medina of Fes,you will have to pass under this door, the main entrance of the medina... I recommend a visit in the evening to see it all lit up...
