The medina is the most interesting site in fes, is like travel to the past being in the present. Fes is an amazing place and you need to dedicate a few days in it.The Medina of Fes is the biggest and the oldest in Africa. The old city is surrounded by tall ancient wall. The Medina of Fez preserves, in an ancient part comprising numerous monumental buildings, the memory of the capital founded by the Idrisid dynasty between 789 and 808 A.D.

Souk

Inside the Fez Souk you’ll see mule loaded with goods in the busy narrow streets, the mule have the right way. The smell of different spices will overwhelm your senses, merchants selling carpets, some selling dates, sweets, breads. In the hustle and bustle of the market stand many stalls offering you to buy leather goods, ceramics, pottery, copper pots and pan, shirts, kaftans and stalls selling old guns. The streets are also workshops, cafes and restaurants.

Borj Nord

recommendation by susanna-alaitz

natural

Borj Nord is one of those attractions that you can see from anywhere in the town. Borj's North and South were built, not to protect the town from invaders, but to control the unruly inhabitants of Fes. To extract taxes and duties form the free spirited Fassi.
Borj Nord houses a museum of arms and militaria. Fascinating and deadly. The grounds are beautifully kept with many large and small cannon in the grounds.

the tanneries

recommendation by susanna-alaitz

natural

Morocco is famous for its leather goods, it owes its reputation to the young men who - day after day - selflessly work in tanneries like this one, using the same methods today that were used centuries before. It is an experience for the senses (especially the sense of smell) and one that should not be missed! From above the view of the men stamping the skins in the circles of color, or spreading out the vivid, yellow saffron dye, is fascinating.
