Fes(Fez)Originally founded in the 9th century, Fes was Morocco's capital for over 400 years and is one of the country's oldest imperial cities. The city is one of the world's largest remaining medieval cities and is famous for its history, architecture, cuisine and souks.
The old walled medina encompasses remarkable historical monuments such as the 14th century Bou Inania Madrasa(medersa), Al Attarine Madrasa, Fes el Jdid Madrasa and the 9th century Kairaouine (Karaouyine) Mosque, as well as its many bazaars and souks (such as the Souk Ain Allou (leather), the Souk Attarine (spices), Souk au Henne (henna and kohl), the exterior of Dar el Makhzen (Royal Palace) including the enormous Merenid gate of Bab Dekakene, formerly the main entrance of the royal palace. Orient yourself with the panoramic view of Fes from the late 16th century Borj Nord fortress which overlooks the city.
