Photographer's Note

Looking through Bab Boujaloud into the Medina.

This Bab Boujeloud, the western gate, is perhaps the most colorful and identifiable gate in all of Fes. It was constructed in 1913, making it a relative youngster on the block. Its tiled facades are painted in swirled patterns. Its outer facade features blue, which is the traditional color of Fes. Its inner medina facade features green, the traditional color of Mohammed and Islam. This is perhaps the main entry point into Fes el-Bali, with plenty of vendors, tour guides, dining establishments, donkeys, and general hubbub.
