Fez is enthralling tradition
In its heyday, Fez attracted scholars and philosophers, mathematicians and lawyers, astronomers and theologians.
Craftsmen built them houses and palaces, kings endowed mosques and medersas (religious schools), and merchants offered exotic wares from the silk roads and sub-Saharan trade routes.
Fes is a city whose cultural and spiritual lineage beguiles visitors. Something of the medieval remains in the world's largest car-free urban area: donkeys cart goods down the warren of alleyways.
The perfect day in Fez starts with the heart of the old town, Fez El Bali. Bab Boujloud; enjoy an amazing view of the minaret of the Medersa Bou Inania. The sounds of birds while sitting in a green garden enjoying the fresh mint tea is the perfect way to start the day in a relaxing atmosphere.
Next, it's time to discover the Medina. With traditional shopping souks, the Al-Andalous Mosque and the amazing Medersas, enjoy the picturesque handmade tiles and a pool area.
Al Quaraouiyine Mosque, one of the most distinguished universities in the world. Built in 857 AD, its library contains more than 30, 000 books including a 9th century Qur'an.
Throughout the neighbourhood, items like leather and metalwork, zellij (Moroccan tiles), Moroccan slippers, and rainbow-glass lamps are all displayed and sold at stalls in the narrow streets just west of the Al Quaraouiyine Mosque. This is also the famous area of the Chouara Tannery of Fez, one of the top things to see in the Old Medina.
