Morocco Tours From Fes, Desert Morocco Tours

Feel as if you have stepped back centuries into the world of Fes (Fez). In addition to the European part, built after the First World War, there is Fes el J’did c.14AD and Fes el Bali c.9AD. The Old Medina of Fes el Bali is a World Heritage Site and one of the largest medieval cities of its type – its narrow cobbled streets are filled with ancient mosques and towering green-glazed minarets. Losing yourself here is akin to losing yourself in time, until you emerge into the clatter of a busy souk where proud artisans craft objects as their forefathers did before them. Highlights of a day walking tour include :
Mosques including the Quaraouiyine Mosque founded in 859 by Fatima el Fihri and the Andalusian Mosque dating back to 860. Entry is not permitted to non-Muslims Fountains including the Nejjarine fountain
Medersa (Koranic schools) founded as early as the 13th century
Batha Palace now a museum of arts and traditions
Chouwara Tanneries
Souks including Souk Attarine, one of the liveliest in the city
Mellah and the 17th century Ibn Danan synagogue
