The spiritual and cultural Capital!
Fez is one of the most popular cities in Morocco.
It is an imperial city such as Marrakech, Rabat…
It is necessary to have two or more days to visit this city.
Fez has many treasures, a beautiful architecture with its luxury Riad hotels and palaces which show Morocco's wealth.
As in most all the Moroccan towns, Fez had been built around a “Medina” (Old town).
In Fez, the most interesting thing is the Medina, and its architecture.
There are many streets, and sometimes people get lost... the Medina is like a labyrinth!
At the entrance of this Medina, there are gates and taxis can not enter!
You can find a lot of handcrafts in the Medina.
Then, visit the tanners' quarters, visit the Karaouine Mosque, visit some typical shops and do some shopping.
Around Fez, I recommend that you visit the town of Ifrane.
Ifrane has been selected as the second world's town, because its air is pure.
Special event in Fez.
Each year there is a music festival:

This event gives a universal dimension of Fez and is dedicated to tolerance, spirituality and open mindedness.
