Fès is wrapped in a regal atmosphere, a charm inherited from its being the oldest of the imperial cities of Morocco, a prerogative that has given the city so much prestige. It has also established itself over time as a religious and cultural centre of the country. Keep reading

DiscoverMore

An unmissable stop during a tour in Fès are certainly the ancient medieval tanneries: these are large stone tanks that are filled with pigments that are used to color the leathers, then hung out to dry. After scouring the length and breadth of the fascinating Medina, we recommend that you take a tour of the Jewish quarter, Mellah, before admiring - only from the outside, unless you are of the Islamic faith - the centuries-old al-Karaouine Mosque. . Instead, if you want to visit a building of Islamic architecture from the inside, head to the Medrasa Bou Inania which will amaze you with its splendid inlaid cedar decorations.

Fès

Moroccan architecture and history

The city of Fes is considered the country's religious, cultural and artisan centre. 150,000 people live in its Medina, the largest car-free urban area in the world, which therefore holds the record of the largest Medina of all Maghreb, in addition to having received the recognition of World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Visit the historic Madrasa Bou Inania and the other sparkling mausoleums!

  • Discover the Madrasa Bou Inania
