Lately, more and more people understand the beauty of Meknes, Historical and architectural heritages Bab Mansour and the Mausoleum of Moulay Ismail are the symbol of the town. Less people, less touristique and less expensive. And foods are amazing since this is the center of the agriculture in Morocco!
Bab Mansour is an old city gate, just in front of the medina in Meknes. Built by Moulay Ismail, the 17th century Sultan. "Mansour" is a name of the architect, who converted from a Christian Muslim. Zellige mosaic here is amazing!
Now we're getting into the Mausoleum of Moulay Ismail. So far the only mausoleum open to non Muslims in Morocco.
Here you can find so many interesting examples of zellige mosaic. The mausoleum itself is already like a museum!
A shop in the medina, selling sawing threads. Moroccans know how to make things look beautiful!
