First stop was the Heri es-Souani.... the immense Royal Stables and Granary.
The stables housed 12,000 horses and the granary held enough feed for 20 years!
The roof of the stables was destroyed in an earthquake in the 18th century...
We had hoped to visit the Mausoleum....... but it was closed for renovation!
Then on to the Medina.... via Bab Mansour... or rather around the side of it as it is only rarely opened!
The gate looks across to the el-Hedime square...
where one takes one's life in one's hands to cross the road in-between....no traffic lights and the blue taxis do not even hesitate!
We were intent on visiting an old Medersa within the Medina...
This Medersa Bouanania is no longer in use... and there were no tourists there!
This was built around 1345! And apparently has never needed to have renovation work done on it.
