Photographer's Note

Bab Boujloud in Fes
Here, where the minarets of the Bou Inania Medersa and the Sidi Lazaz Mosque stand out against the sky, is the main entrance to the Medina. Hispano-Moorish in style and built in the 13th century during the reign of the Almohads, it was renovated in 1913 and is the most recent of the city’s gateways. It leads to the square of the same name, which adjoins the former Kasbah of Boujloud built by the Almohad Sultan Mohammed En-Nasser and in use today as a residential district.
