There are 19 gates in the old city of Marrakech, Bab Agnaou is one of them, letting you into the kasbah on the southern end of the medina, which is where the El Badi Palace and the Saadian Tombs are. Built in the 12th Century the gate is worth visiting for the ornate designs of shells, floral patterns and inscriptions it's decorated with. One of the longest inscriptions is from the Quran.
