Fes is the cultural heart and spiritual soul of Morocco. The Medina of Fes is a UNESCO world heritage site. This first imperial city of Morocco is alluring and apt for the culturally aware. You will find yourself weaving through an ancient walled Medina that’s been in existence since the 9th century. As you pass palatial riads with heavy ornate doors, you will find yourself competing for space as mule carts are the only ‘vehicle’ allowed. Fes is a blend of old and new, as you will see traditional djellaba wear and modern fashion.
