The Bab was architecturally impressive, but that was it! You can take a picture next to it or just admire it. However the adjacent place/souk to it was a bit unique and different from what we saw in other Morrocan cities; we were surrounded by...More

obviously it’s one of the architectural masterpieces among the gates here and all over the country. however, the spot in front of it is a good place to observe people traffic and what’s going on the square on the other side, to catch a horse...More

Yes it’s a wonderful big door and any tour guide will definitely take you there, but it’s one among thousands in Morocco so don’t feel bad if you miss it.

The bab Mansour itself is quite impressive, but Ladhim Sq beside it is a low-end market where you'll see the usual dancing monkeys on chains, and occasional snake charmer. Together with the smell of donkey dung from all the pack animals that brings goods to...More

The Bab Mansour area is indeed very pretty but also very crowded with bus loads of tourists so during the busy time it is almost impossible to get a clean picture with no one in it. Gates are almost always closed unless there is some...More

A beautiful gate, but it is always closed, so on the upside you should get a decent photo of it. We were disillusioned with the place, anything worth seeing was closed for renovation, so we have little to show photo wise for Meknes

Large ornate gate. Great for pictures but recommend seeing other things as well. It's a quick stop. Other than taking some pictures, don't expect too much else. Directly across the gate is a large courtyard for eating, shopping, and souvenirs.

Nice gate to visit as part of a tour. It is massive with intricate details. Would have to step back across a busy road to appreciate this massive portal. No need to spend a lot of time here.

We took a Sunday morning drive from Fes specifically to see this Bab. It's an easy drive and the countryside is nice, too. There were definitely tons of Moroccan tourists there too, mugging for selfies and posing for photos... it's a huge Gate, but we...More

My wife and his family members are the descendants of Moulay Ismail who was also the descendant of prophet Muhammad. Many Ismailis are still living in Meknes.
