UNESCO - Historic City Of Meknes, Morocco



                           

                                      

Meknes is a city in northern Morocco 60 kilometres  west from Fes - it was the capital of Morocco under the reign of Moulay Ismail (1672–1727), before it was relocated to Marrakech. The sultan turned it into a impressive city in Spanish-Moorish style, surrounded by high walls with great doors, where the harmonious blending of the Islamic and European styles of the 17th century Maghreb are still evident today.
It was very relaxing exploring this lovely place even though I had a severe cold. I've noticed that I missed posting the gates here on my blog :)
