The city’s craftspeople are experts in many different fields, including as delicate metalwork, vivid fabrics, fine ceramics, and leatherwork.

The colorful exhibition of this artistry can be seen in the souks of Fez, where guests can watch.

While watching the sky of an evening swarm with thousands of swifts returning to their nests in the old citys open-aired medieval tanneries, an iconic image associated only with Fez

Fez And It’s New City : But to discover yourself in Fez is, like in Marrakech, to find oneself lost in time. The ancient city of Fez, with its mosques, palaces, madrassas, and a medina with crafts and trade that have hardly altered in a millennium, is one of the last living examples of medieval civilization in the world. Additionally, be mindful of the donkeys and their hefty bags. You have to squeeze yourself into them everywhere in Fez

Discovering the maze of winding alleyways, bustling marketplaces, cramped dwellings, historic factories, and revered mosques is like being in a place where the Middle Ages never ended!
