Of course, the heart of Meknes is the medina. The main attractions are located here. If you buy a tour to Meknes, be sure to walk through the medina. The old town is an Arab quarter with a lot of intricate streets and fairly dense housing. Along the perimeter of the medina are 10-meter stone walls with corner towers, which were built to protect against Berber raids. You can enter the medina through the Bab el-Mansour Gate. The beautiful gate with its mosaic patterns and fine stucco work is already a tourist attraction. They were built in the 18th century and are still considered the most beautiful gates in Morocco.
Walking around the old city, you will notice that the city has preserved many historical sites. Meknes was once the capital of the powerful Sultan Moulay Ismail. During his reign, many palaces, gardens, and mosques were built. In fact, the large number of mosques contributed to the fact that Meknes is called the “city of a thousand minarets. Recall that non-Muslims are forbidden to enter the mosques, but you can admire the exterior. The most popular mosque in Meknes is the Great Mosque with its majestic carved doors. Not far from the mosque is the Madrasa Bu Inania. It is built in an airy Spanish-Moorish style and is a landmark.
The medina is also home to famous palaces. Dar Jamai Palace was built in the late 19th century in the best Moorish traditions. The building is decorated with mosaic and tile tiles and festooned arches. Next to the palace there is a beautiful garden with cypress and orange trees. Nowadays in the palace there is an ethnographic museum. Visitors can get acquainted with the elements of everyday life, a rich collection of embossing, antique jewelry. Another palace, El Mansour, has become a popular tourist store.
Another of the attractions of Meknes located in the medina is the medieval building complex Kheri es-Suani. It combines stables, grain storage facilities, and an Agdal pond. These stables once housed more than 12,000 horses and the wheels of the waterworks were turned by slaves. After a full day’s sightseeing, you can pause and admire the water of the Agdal Pond.
The center and the magnet of the medina is El Khedim Square. During the day, vendors sell souvenirs, and in the evening the area is transformed into an open-air theater: snake tamers, artists, dancers performing unusual dances, acrobats, fire swallowers and much more. The feeling of plunging into an oriental fairy tale. You can also eat tasty and inexpensive food here – the site turns into a huge food court.

History of origins
Casbahs were most often built outside the city or in the heart of Medina and were enclosed by high stone walls. They were residences for the king. They also housed dignitaries and their families. Very often the kasbah was used as a protective fortress outside the city.
On the territory of Kasbah Shefshauan museum emerged a long time ago. There is no exact date of its foundation, a rough date can be considered the beginning of the XIX century. The museum was created to preserve and study the history of the city.
It has a small collection of items dating back to Roman times and the time when the town was founded by Jews and Muslims who had been expelled from Spain. But for the most part, the museum is the site where the prison used to be.
