Bab Agnaou is one of the 19 gates of Marrakech and was built in
the 12th century, in the time of the Almohad dynasty. The function
of the gate may have been nationally symbolic; the corner-pieces
are decorated with floral decorations, framed by three panels with
inscriptions from the Quran. Bab Agnaou forms the entrance to the
royal kasbah in southern Marrakech. The kasbah, built by the
Almohad sultan Yaqub al-Mansour, is home to the El Mansouria
mosque, the El Badi Palace and the Saadian Tombs.
