This was one of our favorite places in Morocco. This area has so much you should visit but you have to study it well not to get lost.

This section houses the university, the casbah, sook and market place. It is a labyrinth of shops, madrasas mosques and more.

Over 1.1 million populate Fes. Old and New medinas host the city's inhabitants with the "new" Medina being more than 700 years old. 1200 years of existence and many lives later have come and gone through these ancient walls. Somehow the market and houses stay erect but wonder about their vulnerability as some are kept up with wood collumn braces.... More

Fez has so much to offer! A little out of the way, but so historic, small and manageable and wonderful friendly people. We were so happy we visited Fez.

Very average in the overall. Good side - good experience to explore a city with history. Bad side - people are pushy. Medina is crowded and dirty

Part of the medina..not near batha though ..it would take forever and ever to really explore the medina and streets of fes..it's so huge and perambulatory to say the least . Good fun for us ...observe architecture ..visit tanneries..stop.by this place if u have time ..or follow your guide and u yet won't miss the best on offer .

This is a very interesting area of the Medina and one of the oldest. It is a place to put one foot in front of the other and just keep going and looking and enjoying the ambience of Morocco.
