Try not to get lost in Fes el-Bali, a maze of winding alleyways that represent the oldest district in the city, protected as a World Heritage Site. Founded at the end of the 8th century, the medina acted as the capital of the Idrisid dynasty, which produced an abundance of historical palaces, mosques, and madrasas. The preservation of the local, everyday culture, particularly in the market areas, is just as remarkable, with leather goods tanning in the street and stall after stall of colorful spices and fresh cuts of meat. Particular landmarks across the medina include storied mosques and one of the oldest universities in the world.

  • Medinas that I visited in various cities of Morocco can say that it is not only the most beautiful but it is mostly a maze of streets, alleys full of silversmiths, goldsmiths, vendors, tanners, improvised guides and guides. A millennial market which is similar to a maze. Of course pay attention to the guide, choose only those authorized, avoiding impromptu.

  • It is a hill overlooking the city of Fez in world heritage sites. It takes about 15 minutes walk from the heart of the Medina. There are security guards on the Hill, why were horses. Views of the evening is beautiful!.
