Culture and history
The bustling medina
Delve into Fez’s medieval side! As a beautiful testimony to Moroccan history, the medina is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Fez el-Bali has, since the 9th century, been a real maze of little streets. There are treasures all around: ceramic tiling and gold on the walls and ceilings, minarets, Madrasas, small squares, souks, craft shops, and more. A glimpse of Fez’s lifestyle.
The Bou Inania school
The Bou Inania Madrasa can be found in Fez’s medina. The 14th-century Madrasa University is one of the largest in Morocco. Adorned with marble, mosaics, stained glass, fountains and other embellishments, the Madrasa cannot be missed. In addition to its classrooms, the school also has a mosque.
A astounding view over Fez
For the most beautiful view of Fez, head to the Marinid tombs. From the upper city, a splendid panoramic view will take your breath away. While up there, you can learn a little more about Fez’s history. The tombs you will see are those of the last representatives of the Marinid Dynasty that reigned over the city.
Strolling around Fez’s souks
To discover Fez’s know-how or simply let your senses run free, go and wonder through the city’s souks. Jewellery, spices, fabrics, ornaments and many more are exhibited on the city’s different market stalls. Perfect for bringing back a souvenir.
Moroccan fast food
Looking for an inexpensive meal? Rather than eating in one of Fez’s restaurants, stop at one of the market stalls or in the streets near Bab Bou Jeloud. Meat skewers, briouates and pastries are sold at a great price. Ideal for a meal on the go.
Briouates, the Moroccan fritters
Briouates look like Asian samosas. The triangles of brick pastry are filled with meat, vegetables and spices, or with cheese. They are then fried. Briouates can also be filled with almonds and honey for a sweet treat.
Crunchy gazelle horns
These delicious pastries get their name from their shape: a horn. Gazelle horns are made with pastry filled with a mixture of crushed or ground almonds and orange blossom. They are sometimes rolled in icing sugar. A real marvel!
