Morroco, located in the NW of Africa, counts three mayor cities.
-Casablanca as an economical pivot table
-Rabat as the Capital and seat of the government
-And .. Fès finaly as intellectual and artisan headquarter of Morocco.
Even more .. Morocco counts 4 imperial cities: Rabat, Marrakesh, Fès and Mehnès.
Fès is the oldest one
Once you find your way in the many narrow streets of the Fès Medina you have to visit the El Attarina medresse, a highlight of combined architecture of wood and marble.
It is here that i was fascinated by the "zellij" sculptures of Koran verses
From the right to the left
"Allah, thanks for saving me today once again against Satan"
The University of Fez ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
In many corners and public streets you will see this well decorated waterfountains, used for many reasons like daily water supply (local woman on the left - having some waterfun (local children in the middle), cleaning shoes by a professional shoemaker (right).
Very narrow streets, many shops, no cars allowed - only locals, tourists and mules and donkies
(who is who?) because this is the only way of transport in the oldest part of the city. And be aware - they have the first right ! The mules i mean.
- Pros:The most beautiful historical city of N.Africa
A lot to see - prices are labeled and the owner is telling that especially for you "THERE IS A SPECIAL PRICE" What ever... more travel advice
A huge one - with several leather products from belts to shoes and jackets - and a perfect view on the local production... more travel advice
