The city of Fez, considered the cultural capital of Morocco, is one of the most important and visited cities of northern Africa. The  atmosphere in Fez is very traditional, and here we can find an endless monuments and charms with long history.

Much of these historical monuments are located in the “Medina“, meaning “the city” and is the oldest part of Fez, also the tourist area, crowded with alleyways and squares.

Some of the things that should be visited and eBooking recommend when you go to Fez, are:

  • Tannery Chouwara: located in the heart of the Medina, and is the largest and most extensive in the city. This tannery is made the great part of the leather that produces Fez.
  • Karaouine mosque: a spectacular construction of the year 859, this mosque is best known for hosting the oldest university in the world and is one of the most important Centers of Islamic learning.As the majority of the mosques of the world, access to this mosque is allowed only to the Muslims.
  • The Royal Palace of Fez: one of the largest and oldest palaces in Morocco, was built in the fourteenth century. This palace has huge bronze doors with local decoration, that we can approach and contemplate its beauty, the access to the interior of the palace is prohibited.
