Travel to Fez

Many people visit Morocco and instantly think of Casablanca, which is a shame because Fez is such an incredibly city in its own right. It’s the third largest in the country, home to over 1 million people, and has two old medinas. The Fes el Bali is even listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is believed by many to be the largest car-free urban area in the world. The oldest continually functioning madrasa, or educational institution, is also located in Fez, but it wasn’t always that way. Fez is unique in the fact that until the 11th century, it was actually two separate cities. Today, however, there are incredible opportunities to explore this this beautiful city that may be an underrated tourist destination right now, but won’t be in the very near future.

The Monuments of Fez Deserve Their Own Tour

With structures dating back to the 9th century still being used today, the monuments that are sprinkled throughout this city are a testament to human ingenuity. The start of your monument tour should be the Madrasa Bout Inania, which is the only madrasa in Fez with a minaret. It is also one of the few religious places in Morocco that is accessible to non-Muslims. The Dar al-Magana, a wall with a hydraulic clock, is very unique and built in 1357. The patron saint of the city is Moulay Idriss II and his shrine is located in Fez. The shrine was built where it stands today because nearly 500 years after his death, a body was found completely uncorrupted and it was thought to be him. Moulay Idriss II ruled Morocco in the early 9th century and helped to found Fez for a second time, so paying respects to him during a visit is often considered a sign of respect.

You Can’t Miss the Medina of Fez!

If your goal of journeying to Fez is to lose touch with the Western world, then visiting the Medina of Fez will certainly help you to accomplish this! It is truly an extraordinary play where you can get lost in the winding passageways that have seen 1100 years of history pass by them. Make sure you bring your A game for the marketplace because the bargaining began the moment you stepped foot into the market. For a unique can’t miss opportunity, we also highly recommend the Nejjarine Museum of Wood Arts and Crafts while visiting this city. Not only will you get an incredible view of the city from the roof of the museum, but you’ll get to view the intricate wood carvings that provide the fine details of what this city has to offer in many of its neighborhoods. There’s a place to get some coffee on site, which you’ll need for the steep stairs that you’ve got to climb to get to each floor!

A trip to Fez is truly a life-changing experience and should be done at least once by everyone. The beauty in this city can be found on both the macro and micro level and it speaks not only to the fierce dedication of this community, but the love and care that they have for finding perfect moments in the smallest of details. That’s why this city deserves a visit in the near future!
