The tombe itself is worth looking at but the real reason to go here is for the great view of Fes. It is a perfect location and magnificent at sunset.

The tombs were not all that interesting, but the view of Fez provided some context for the maze we'd just exited. A cemetery is on the other side of the hill and we watched a funeral procession take place, with an explanation from our guide about local funeral practices. That was the best part of our visit.

After wandering through the narrow streets of the medina, a hike to the Tombe dei Merenidi is excellent. My guide book suggested that it wasn't real safe to walk to the tombs so I took a petite taxi and walked back. If you walk to the Bab Mahrouk and turn right....the bus station will be on your left. Follow the... More

If travelling through the medina, you must establish which gate needs to be entered/exit. We started at Bab Rcif, walked 20 minutes uphill through the Medina, and exited at Bab Guissa. It's good to do this walk during 9/10am were the Medina is relatively quiet and the footfall is at a minimum. Once exiting the gate, you must cross over... More

Drove up here to take panoramic views of Fes. Loved the view. Could have sat here for hours just looking.

I ended my long day of walking by walking up the hill to the tombe around sunset, and found myself with a beautiful view of the city on one side and rolling hills on the other. Keep in mind there is nothing to "do" there, just sit back and enjoy the beauty of the city.

If you want to see it all, than here's the place. But I will recommend to drive by taxi. That's what the locals recommend as well. Otherwise, you will be approached by different people.. Anyway, can't miss the view!

The views from here are incredible ... from the old Medina to some ancient ruins, there's plenty to take in. Except for a few young urchins, this place is free of the hustle and touts in the old city, a welcome relief. I especially recommend a visit at sunset, as the colours are beautiful and there are only a couple... More

This is a place for a beautiful view of the city and surrounding landscape. Many tour guides might be hesitant to take you here because there is nothing for you to buy here so they won't get any commission. That's part of what makes it so great, although there were a few guys selling trinkets up there. End the day... More
