Fez is a true gem, a treasure trove of history, culture, and beauty. Founded by Moulay Idriss in the 8th century, Fez is so far the oldest medieval and imperial city of Morocco, this is what makes the visit of Fez a must when you are visiting Morocco.
As soon as you step foot in Fez, you’ll be transported back in time. The city is renowned for its well-preserved medieval architecture, including the incredible Al-Attarine Madrasa, a 14th-century Islamic school that is considered one of the finest examples of Moroccan architecture. And let me tell you, it’s a sight to behold.
But Fez is more than just a history lesson – it’s a living, breathing city that is steeped in culture and tradition. The Fez medina, one of the largest car-free urban areas in the world, is a labyrinth of narrow alleys, bustling souks, and hidden courtyards. Here, you’ll find everything from artisan workshops and spice markets to traditional Moroccan tea houses and restaurants serving up some of the best cuisines in the country.
And let’s not forget about the famous Fez leather tanneries, where craftsmen have been producing some of the finest leather goods in the world for centuries. The tanneries are an incredible sight to see, and you’ll learn about the process of transforming raw hides into beautiful, finished products.
Despite being one of the oldest cities in Morocco, Fez has a youthful energy that’s hard to resist. You’ll see this in the student population, with the city being home to one of the oldest universities in the world, and in the vibrant arts scene, with musicians and artists coming together to celebrate their shared heritage.
Fez has plenty of quiet corners, as well, where you can escape the hustle and bustle of the city. The Royal Palace, for example, is a tranquil oasis in the heart of the city, with lush gardens and stunning views. And if you’re a fan of Moroccan architecture, don’t miss the Bou Inania Madrasa, a stunning example of a traditional Islamic school with intricate carvings and intricate tilework.
