The architecture, design and the intricate carvings are all breathtaking to look at in these pictures - I imagine even more so to have seen them in person.

Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for sharing your walk, Lady Mac. It is indeed a very interesting place. Are the guards dressed so in the summer too? Nice that they are interactive and it's great that the Moroccans are tourists in their own land.

Wonderful. Absolutely wonderful. I like the mosaics best.

I visited the Mausoleum of Hassan II once with a young Moroccan professional guy... he told me the place in effect creeped him out due to the things Hassan II had done through his life. He said it felt like he had to watch what he said as the old Hassan II may just be listening!

Love the blog...

Yes, the guards (bless their hearts) were dressed the same when I saw them during the heat.

Knowing your artistic bent, I'm not surprised the mosaics appealed to you! There are even more splendid examples in Fez.

thank you for coming by.

An interesting perspective! From what I have read, and heard, I have no doubt others may experience the same!
