Take the picturesque entrance to the old quarter by passing through Bab Boujloud, a grand archway covered in blue mosaics. Built in 1913, the monumental gate was originally intended to provide protection for the medina; however, the advent of heavy artillery compromised its effectiveness, so it opted instead to intimidate with its attractiveness. The shimmering blue mosaic features floral patterns, geometric shapes, and calligraphy. Today, locals and tourists use this local landmark as a meeting place.
