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.

    Bab Ftouh quarter was at one time called the Leper’s Colony. It was thronged with
    thieves, sorcerers, maniacs and dervishes. This area’s cemetery is located on a hill. It is the largest graveyard of Fes. It is famous for several tombs. There is a tomb enclosure of marabouts called el-Kbab or the Domes. The most visited is the white koubba of Sidi Ali Ben Harazem. Sidi was a 12th century mystic. He was the patron of the mentally ill and a teacher in the Quaraouiyine University. He taught the works of Al Ghazali. A colourful moussem of Sidi is held here each spring. The most famous person buried here is the founder of the Alaouite Dynasty, Moulay Rashid. There is a flat open air praying area here called the Msalla of the Pasha. It is a very interesting cemetery.

    This Cemetery is located next to the Southern Gate of Fes el Bali which is it’s namesake, Bab Mahrouk. It is the largest Muslim burial site of the old city. It is situated just outside the Old Medina walls. You can find many Muslim graves here facing the Qibla or the direction of the prayer. The most notable among these is that of the renowned Islamic scholar and highly acclaimed authority on hadith Abu Bakr ibn al-'Arabi.
