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.

Briouates, the Moroccan fritters

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!
