Essaouria is a beach town in south east morocco. Every city in Morocco has a Medina, which means old town. The entire medina is surrounded by a wall and there are only 3 entry doors "GATES". These gates are the most amazing gates in Morocco that I saw. I have attached a short cool video that I made to represent each of them. 

How to get there:
Entering the Medina of Essaouira
