Marrakech Ramparts, Marrakech

4.2
Commissioned in 1126, Marrakech Ramparts stand as the walls of the old city stretching about 19 km (12 mi) in length. These 8-10 m (26-33 ft) high, 2 m (6.5 ft) thick walls made of reddish pink clay are home to many birds nesting in hundreds of indentions punched for maintenance by wooden scaffolding. Flanked by 202 square towers and featuring nine impressive gates, the ramparts provide a favorite rest area for locals, with flowerbeds, benches, and rose gardens. Check out the well-preserved 1,300 m (4,265 ft) long masterly row of bastions beyond Doukkala gate.
