Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Our Riad was nearby & we enjoyed evening strolls in the plaza. The gate is beautiful. It is very lively with merchants selling, children playing and neighbors gossiping. There is an area to sit & watch if desired. There are some places to eat but we didnt take any risk. My husband became sick after Casablanca & Marrakesh even though we avoided street food.

    Talaa Kabira or the Big Slope cuts right through Fez el Bali. It runs parallel to Rue Talaa Saghira. Talaa Kabira starts from The Blue Gate and terminates at the Kairaouine Mosque. This is one of the most colourful and interesting lanes of Fes. Carpet shops, food outlets, spice shops, butcheries with camel heads, bright slippers workshops can be found here. Buildings with classic facades are scattered on this thoroughfare.

    There is terrific architecture in Fes, including this street of Andalusian architecture. I was here with a tour group. Without our guide leading us through the old city of Fes, I would have missed these beautiful buildings. Travelling provides so much awareness of culture.

    It is also called Méchouar de Bab Dekaken or Gate Of the Benches. You can reach this enclosed parade ground via Bab el Saba and Bab Segma. There are high ramparts around this long levelled open area. It overlooks the Madina, which used to be a 17th century Italian arms and ammunition’s factory. This was an entertainment enclosure where the city dwellers used to gather to hear tales from storytellers, see magicians in action, watch dancers and hear music from the musicians. These days the Fez Festival of World Sacred Music is held here.
