  • There has it all. Have a good guide to help you, because you will lose a lot of the history alone and the details. It has everything, leather, carpets, fabrics, ceramics, metals, crazy. But the help of a reliable and dedicated guide makes all the difference, freeing you to waste time listening to nonsense to traders and if enfronhando on the root of the city, in the lanes and alleys, walking for hours getting lost and thinking. The medina of FES is what could translate Moroccan lifestyle. And if you want to buy, it's there, all beautiful, all extremely well done. Your guide will be of great help to separate the "made in china" of real Moroccan handicrafts. Did is a city for 3 days of visits to a minimum.
