3/24.- Meknes, Bab Mansour El Alj Gate, detail


Meknes is a rather small town that can be visited in one day. But if you have plenty of time during your visit to Morocco, I would dedicate a second day to Meknes (or half a day more) in order to visit the monuments on a more relaxed way.

Once in Meknes, the first thing you have to do is go to the Medina's main square, El-Hdim. This Square is similar to the one in Marrakech, but smaller and quieter. From the square you can walk to the Souqs and the old Medina. Once you come back from the visit to the shops, you can go to one of the cafes in the square and enjoy a mint tea in a terrace. In order to visit the Royal City I recommend taking a cab, but it is also possible to go there walking.
