Bab Mansour Gate is usually closed except for special occasion. It is a wonderful example of Arab architecture, mosaics and stone carving. A few photos is all that is required here.

The Bab Mansour Gate itself is a great piece of architecture and well worth seeing however Place Lahdim can get very busy and the gate is often obscured by traffic .
