An emblematic monument of Salé, Bab Lamrissa, also called Bab Mellah, is a fortified gate dating back to the 13th century. Former sea gate, it is one of the main gates of the current wall of the medina of Salé and has the most impressive size. It is one of the two monumental gates of an old maritime warfare apparatus, built between 1260 and 1270 by the Merinids. Its construction was decreed after Salé had been plundered by Alfonso X of Castile in 1260.
