There's not much left to see of this site, but it's a great place to come because of the view over the whole city and the ramparts, because they're right on the edge of the valley. While you're there you might as well pause to admire the two large, gate-like structures, as well as all the green mosque roofs and minarets of Fes. Take a taxi up avoiding the guides, then walk back down along the goat tracks. Be careful round the caves, there are people still living in some of them.
