It is one of the vibrant neighborhoods in the city despite its old age, as there are many shops specialized in selling traditional and leather products, which attract many tourists from various Arab and foreign countries of the world.

"Ancienne Medina" is also a place for shopping and buying various needs of clothes, gold and silver jewelry, which makes it a tourist destination for Arab and foreign travelers.

 It is surrounded by walls that have a long history, but only some of these walls remain; the wall overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and part of the wall overlooks Velisk Hovowit Street and the other overlooks Al-Taher Al-Alawi Street where the historic gate is located in Marrakesh Gate. The city walls were demolished during the earthquake of 1775 AD.
