BAB AHMAR


Bab Ahmar, "The Red Door", is located behind the largest cemetery of Marrakech. When the King does not stay in Marrakech the door allows access to the Mechouar Square of Allegiance, which leads directly to the Lagdal gardens and the great Mechouar, where grand parties and banquets were organized in the past. Here the greatest knights took part in the spectacular "Fantasia" organized on the occasion of the Moussem (religious festivals).
