Details about Meknes excursion:

Moulay Idriss is a city in the north spread over two hills at the base of Mount Zerhoun, the holy city of Moulay Idriss Zerhoune holds a special place in the heart of the Moroccan people. It was there that Moulay Idriss was arrived in 789, bringing with him the religion of Islam, and starting a new dynasty. In addition to the founding of the city named after him, he also initiated Construction of Fez, later, pursued by his son, Moulay Idriss II.

After reaching Meknes, your excursion is mainly is going to be based on visiting the following culturally and historically valuable places:

Hri Souani: The most esteemed building of Meknes. It is remarked by his impressive dimensions, formed in two parts: the water house and the part covered with the monument and the attics. Not very far, you can find Habs Kara «Kara Prison» constructed by Moulay Ismail. This building is endowed with impressive and unique architecture in Morocco.

Place El-Hedim: Built by Moulay Ismail for public executions and royal announcements, this structure is now the heart of the Medina. It’s the perfect place to kick your feet up and people watch. Visit one of the cafes within the square, where you can order some mint tea and listen to local musicians playing for tips.

Bab El-Mansour—a massive, international renowned entrance—is one of the most intriguing parts of Place el-Hedim. It’s the most impressive of all Moroccan gates. Completed in 1732 by Moulay Ismali’s son, the gate has been well preserved. Although you can only walk through the gate on special occasions, it’s worth a snapshot or two while you’re walking around the market.

Of course, like most other cities in Morocco, the souks of Meknes are a must-see. In the Meknes souks you’re free to wander around aimlessly, taking in all the sights, sounds and smells.

The Dar Jamaï museum has been used for various purposes in the past. Built in 1882 to house the Jamai family (who had connections with Moulay el-Hassan), the building was then used as a military hospital until 1912. In 1920 it became the Museum of Moroccan Art. It now houses intricate pieces of art, like traditional ceramics, jewelry, embroidery and rugs.

The Mausoleum of Moulay Ismail would be another sight to see while visiting Meknes. After traveling through several peaceful entrance courtyards, you will remove your shoes and pay a fee. The tomb and surrounding rooms are meant to be places of quiet and tranquility. Non-Muslims are not allowed to approach the tomb itself, but they are allowed to take photos of the lavish and intricate decor.
