Historical city

This is one of the main districts of the historical city of Fez. There are lots of Riads to visit but they are quite hard to find on your own.

This is a small medina but an interesting one. The image of the three doors is one that is worth capturing. I believe this is now a UNESCO site.

We entered the Medina through the northwest corner, near the entrance of the (closed) public garden. We soon got lost in the small streets, but what a pleasure it was to wander about without being confronted with souvenir shops, peddlers, and hords of tourists, like in the Fes El Bali Medina. We stumbled on many typical scenes: tailor shops, bakeries.... More

The whole Medina is protected by UNESCO so it is important to visit it completely in order to understand the evolution and the different periods. This zone is the most recently built inside the historic center.

This is the New Medina, one of the three parts of the city of Fes, the others being Fes-el-Bali, or Old Fes, and Ville Nouvelle, or the New City.I think Fes-el-Bali is probably the most "exciting" of the three.

The new part of the old Fes. I wasn't particularly impressed after having been in Marrakech. There are two kind of markets - Friday market - when the shops are closed and road-side vendors sell mostly clothes in front of these closed shops and non- Friday markets - when the shops are open reaching out to the centre of the...

The Fes El jadid district is part of the ancient medina of Fes. The architecture is authentic and special.
