Fez

Fès or Fez is the third largest city of Morocco after Casablanca and Rabat. From 1170 and 1180, Fès is believed to be the largest city in the world. It is located at the foothills of Atlas Mountains in a beautiful valley and surrounded by magnificent mountains. Fès is one of the four imperial cities and is also considered as the sacred and holiest city after Mecca and Medina by Muslims. Marrakesh, Meknes and Rabat are the other three famous imperial cities of Morocco.

Fès is divided into three districts: The city is divided into three districts namely Fès el-Bali or Old Fès, Fès el-Jdid or New Fès, and the modern French built Ville Nouvelle. Fès el-Bali is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This district is also believed to be the largest car-free urban area in the world. The University of Al-Karaouine, one of the world’s oldest continuous operating universities founded in 859 AD is located in Fès.

Visitors on Morocco tours can find many fascinations in the markets of this Moroccan city and can spend hours wandering and exploring. The friendly people, excellent food and interesting sites make this place a must visit. The city is famous for a variety of dried fruits, leather goods, ceramics and textiles.

Fès is also popular for its tanneries: The process of making leather in this city is the same as that was used during the middle ages. It is a prime attraction as visitors on a Fez Morocco Journey can walk through the narrow paths which are surrounded by tanneries and can watch the leather being rinsed, the creaking water wheels and huge vats full of lye. The buildings that face these tanneries are covered with pelts of leather that is hung to be dried. The best time to visit these tanneries is early morning as in the later hours stench of leather sets. People can opt for guided Morocco Tours through Fès city and it is suggested that they ask their hotel staff to arrange a genuine and knowledgeable guide for them.
