Oudaia Gate

Recommended
Is it a work of art or a fortress? A legitimate question, as Oudaia Gate is such a fine illustration of the Almohads' virtuosity. Made entirely of freestone in a beautiful red ochre colour, it is composed of two horseshoe arches - note the richly sculpted archivolt - and flanked by two columns. Inside, the rooms (laid out in a zigzag pattern) house contemporary art exhibitions.
