Once the base of the Moroccan sultanate, the medina was established in the 17th century--it still contains many of its period palaces, mosques, and fortifications. As you step through the grand gates that mark the entrance to the medina, notice the blending of Islamic and European styles that continues throughout. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Meknes holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Meknes Medina and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
