Take the picturesque entrance to the old quarter by passing through Bab Bou Jeloud, 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.

Bab Bou Jeloud reviews
A beautiful Gate, even if it is not that old. It creates a sense of orientation in and out of the medina

Introduced to us as "the Blue Gate", this is certainly a beautifully decorated and designed gate/ entrance to the old town/ medina area. Lots of shops and stalls nearby, and a very obvious meeting...

Blue gate becomes tourists attraction. One of the major gate that was built in 1913. Behind the gate you will discover Moroccan history. And, you will see arts and crafts, food and fun shopping here. Fascinating local market with lots of local products. Affordable prices. I was very excited and had a good time, so much fun here. However, mind your wallet. It crowded here.
Very nice place. It's being renovated now (the buildings in front of the gates are removed) , there'll be a nice garden and a big parking place underneath (14-aug-2022)
