1 Bab Bou Jeloud in Fes el Bali at Fez, Morocco

Bab Bou Jeloud is an ornate gate leading into Fes el Bali, the Medina of Fez. Its name means The Blue Gate in recognition of the blue glazed tiles adorning its façade. Through the Moorish, horseshoe-shaped arch is the minaret of Madrasa Bou Inania. This Islamic religious school was founded in the mid-14th century during the Marinid Dynasty. This period of Sunni Muslim rule over Morocco occurred from 1244 through 1465.
