The classics in Fez

The Medina

The Medina of Fez is the heir city of Andalusian culture and the cradle of the main Moroccan dynasties. Built in the 8th century, Fez is fascinating and bewitching, both traditional and modern.
You will Enjoy its medieval Marinid architecture, ancient atmosphere and animated souks. With our guide you will discover the Medina through various fascinating places from the traditional tanneries to the madrassas (Madrassa Bouanania for non Muslims) and foundouks, but also the Mellah (the Jewish quarter) with its cemetery and synagogue preserving precious scrolls dating back to the IV century, and of course the fabulous doors of the Royal Place.
Beyond the monuments and exceptional architecture of Fez, take time to observe the local population and especially the craftsmen transforming noble materials still using ancestral methods. Sipping a glass of mint tea in a café at Bab Boujloud is also an excellent way, to get to grip with this eternal, never changing city. A visit in the Medina of Fez is a visit in time and space, miles and centuries away from the hustle and bustle of super modern Casablanca and Rabat.

Visit of the fortifications

Made of clay, bricks and rubble, the fortifications were built centuries ago. They display several fortified gates that give access to the city. In ancient times, doors where closed at nights. This tour features a visit of the main fortified gates, offering splendid views of the thousand-year-old city and leads you to the discovery of pottery makers.
