It groups a series of relatively cramped room around a spacious central hall 26m, 30 long / 10m, 70 of width.
The thickness of the walls ensured a constant temperature that made the preservation of food easy.
Deep wells of several tens of meters provided, using a system of Norias generated by animals.

For more information non-Muslims were granted permission to visit such area.
After, we will go through the victorious gate arch. The gate stands at sixteen meters high with an eight- meter long arch, the intricately patterned triumphal arch is argued to be the most beautiful in Morocco.
