Worth stopping to admire as part of tour of that area, probably the most spectacular and best preserved gate, but not, in itself, something one would spend a long time at, if only as getting good pictures involves risk of being run over.

Best actually admired from the distance this is a working gate of Marrakesh near the Saadian Tombs. It is distinctively decorated and adorned with inscriptions.

As the oldest and most notable gate, it is worth coming to see - especially given the number of attractions in this area.

Bab Agnaou is one of the last, spectacular gates of Marrakech Medina. It is a must to photograph, especially if the storks are around. It was used in the film 'The Man That Knew Too much' by Hitchcock.

This is the most ornate of the entry gates in the Ramparts surrounding the Medina. Apart from its size and some carved inscriptions, nothing too special. Best viewed from across the road.

If you appreciate the history behind this gate involving the Almohad movement, then you will really appreciate this. However, there is quite a bit of traffic in front and I suggest you look at the whole thing from afar across the street.
