On the way back from the Mellah, we stopped at the Boujloud Square to admire the famous Bab Boujloud (Boujloud Gate), the principle entrance to the Fes medinas. Boujloud Square extending over more than two hectares, links the Fes el Bali to the Fes Jdid. Recently restored, it was in more recent years used somewhat disrespectfully as a mere car park.
