Is way more magnificent than your imagination. A mace of markets and culture, well organized in small shops and coops to guarantee a fare share of the profits. Really safe and friendly people happy to see tourists.

Friday is the local day off - can't speak for October but this week less than 1/4 of the medina was open. Tannery is still seen from the leather shops which will be open. Most of the historic sires are closed too as far as... More

This is a rug shop in Fez medina. It can be tricky to find this place in the maze of the medina, so contact him at Hamidou.shop on gmail.
