Fes
Fes’s place as the religious capital of Morocco gives much of its culture a spiritual slant, something that’s reflected in the festivals and celebrations that punctuate the city’s calendar. The highlight of the year is the summertime Festival of World Sacred Music, which attracts musicians from across the globe and has had headliners ranging from Youssou N’Dour to Patti Smith. Festivals of Sufi and Berber culture are also thriving, along with a growing visual arts scene. All this is against a rich backdrop of some of Morocco’s finest urban architecture and traditional decorative arts and crafts.
