          Does it have an elevator? If not, how many flights of steps to terrace? Thank you so much. I am planning a visit in October and Morocco is a tricky place for someone with one bad knee that doesn't like steps ( thank goodness... Walking is fine, even on cobblestones) But if I am by the sea, I want to see the sea!
