Fes Things to Do: 210 reviews and 451 photos


You climb a narrow stone staircase up onto the roof. Before you go you are offered sprigs of mint to help with the smell which can be overwhelming if you’re not used to it or if the weather enhances it. I took the mint but didn’t actually need it although others were definitely uncomfortable. The smell comes mainly from the pigeon droppings used in the curing process because of the ammonia. Cow urine is also used.
