9/24.- Meknes, Mausoleum of Moulay Ismail


In this picture you can see the patio that leads to the shrine of Moulay Ismail.

The son of Moulay Ismail, Moulay Abdallah, and his grandson, Sidi Mohamed ben Abdallah, completed the construction of the Imperial city. Unfortunately, in 1755, an earthquake destroyed part of Ismail's dream. In the 19th century Meknes ceased to be an imperial city, and fell into oblivion.

In the 20th century Meknes recovered part of its lost role as one of the country's trade and business centers. Nowadays, with almost half a million inhabitants, Meknes is the fifth biggest city in Morocco.
