10/24.- Meknes, Mausoleum of Moulay Ismail


The mausoleum of Moulay Ismail dates from the 18th century. Tourists can only visit this room. A room next to it, where the Royal Tombs are, is reserved to Muslims. More rooms are reserved to the Royal family.

Meknes sits on a plateau at the foothills of the Middle-Atlas mountain range. Its climate is continental, but less extreme than that of Fez. Even though it can be very hot in the summer season. For this reason most of the monuments are closed at noon, and reopen after two pm. If you come here in July or August bring light clothes (bermudas and t shirts), sun glasses and a cap may be useful too. Women should dress properly in order to visit the holy sites.
