Fes

The historic heart of Moroccan arts and crafts will make you forget about time in Fes.

In the streets of Morocco’s oldest colonial city, profound history of religious importance echo through the walls and blend with picturesque scenes of daily life. Fes is much more than an exotic paradise of souqs and colorful facades. Its spiritual atmosphere leaves visitors in a solemn admiration unlike anywhere in Morocco. From local traditions to architectural sites, Islamic influence dominates the city. Yet, Moroccan highlights like markets and medinas still have a strong presence, which makes visiting Fes even more worthwhile.

Medina of Fes is prized for its outstanding value and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The iconic gate of Bab Bou Jeloud offers a welcoming entrance into the old city, adorned with indigo-colored tiles and pointed horseshoe arches. Inside, a true labyrinth of small shops and workshops will make you forget about time, and soon you will find yourself in some of the most photographic urban spots in the country, the leather tanneries, and Henna Souq. A savory array of spices, colorful olives, and dry fruits offers a feast for the senses in the souq. As you proceed into the markets, prepare for an eye-pleasing abundance surrounded by colorful fabrics and patterned carpets. 

Fes is one of the few places where local life remains untouched by the tourist rush. In the ageless workshops and studios, artisans carry on the centuries-old practices of leather-making and pottery. The absorbing stories of Moroccan arts, crafts, and the legendary imperial history of Fes will stick with you for a long time.
