Moroccan Photo of the Day - Bab Boujloud

The Bab Bou Jeloud (or Bab Boujeloud; English: The Blue Gate) is a gate that leads to the Old Medina of Fes el Bali, in Fez. These two old photographs are from the collection in the Fine Arts Library of the Harvard College Library

Surrounded by high walls, the Pasha Baghdadi square connects the Medina with Fez el-Jedid. The Bab Bou Jeloud is a beautiful monumental gate built in 1913 and is now one of the main tourist entrances to Fez el-Bali.

when you see how ugly this area is today, another fes Disneylandy harassing area for tourists with plastic chairs and horrible tables - when will they understand that we have to have rules and regulations in such city ? if the cafés would still look like the pictures they would be always FULL and not only with tourists .
