Bab Bou Jeloud (Bab Boujeloud) Tours

star-5
1 Review
Bab Bou Jeloud (Bab Boujeloud)
Bab Bou Jeloud (also written Bab Boujeloud and Bab Boujloud) was built by the French during their occupation of Morocco in 1913. The word Bab means "Gate" in Arabic and it serves as the gateway into the heart of the bustling streets of the Fez medina. Right next to it stands the original 12th­-century gate, built with an indirect entrance on a slant to block battering rams from entering.

Bab Bou Jeloud is Mauresque­-Andalusian in style. Its grand horseshoe arches are decorated with Fassi mosaic blue tiles on the outside and green ones within. From the main archway, two minarets are revealed in the distance: one is part of the crumbling 20th-­century Sidi Lazzaz mosque, while the smaller one, topped by two golden orbs, belongs to the recently restored 14th­-century Bou Inania Medersa.

Throughout the day, the area around Bab Bou Jeloud bustles with local life, and as such this is one of the best spots in the city to observe everyday life in Morocco, with mules, and mopeds filling the streets as much as the locals. There are several cafes and restaurants on both sides of the gate, providing a relaxed setting from which to soak up the local atmosphere.

Practical Info

Walking is the best way to explore the attractions and daily life of Fez. The main street, Talaa Kbira, runs from Bab Bou Jeloud to Kairaouine Mosque in the heart of the medina. Talaa Sghira also begins at Bab Bou Jeloud and eventually merges again with Talaa Kbira.
Address: Bab Boujloud, Fez, Morocco
