Calle de Bailén, 10, 28013 Madrid, Spain
After paying your patriotic fee of 10 Euro to enter the Royal Palace, you will notice the Almudena Cathedral beyond the courtyards gates. While I was too late in the day to be graced with the inner divinities of this structure I did in fact, get...

Calle Conde de Miranda, 1, 28005 Madrid, Spain
If you're in Madrid and in the mood for tapas, you might not know exactly where to go or what to taste. The Mercado San Miguel (metro Sol) takes away all that decision-making by providing you with a taste experience all under one roof. The old,...

Pasadizo de San Ginés, 5, 28013 Madrid, Spain
Founded in 1894 and set in the center of Madrid, not far from Puerta del Sol, San Ginés is a local favorite and a don’t-miss stop during any visit to the capital. No excuses; it never closes. Pasadizo de San Ginés 5, Madrid, 34/91-365- 6546 This...

Rabat, Morocco
Yet another treat to try in Rabat's souk is cactus fruit, which you will have no trouble finding if you wander for a little while. Morocco's deserts are brimming with cacti, and these sweet, slightly tangy fruits are harvested and brought in fresh...

Rabat, Morocco
Rabat's souk is not as cavernous as those of Fez and Marrakech, but it is frequented far more by Moroccans than by tourists, and for that reason it has some unique pleasures. One fo my favorite things to buy in the souk in the old city, especially...

Kasbah of the Udayas, Rabat, Morocco
This picture of a young girl walking down a street perfectly captured the laidback atmosphere within the walls of the Kasbah of the Udayas in Rabat. More than any other city or village we visited in Morocco, the Kasbah of Udayas was not touristy...

Rabat, Morocco
My sister eager to greet the vendors and the Harsha she had been without, having moved to a nearby city, rushed us out of the train station in Rabat and took us on an abridged yet highly recommended route through the capital. My conscientious...
Save Place
Meknes, Morocco
I had the great pleasure of watching a silversmith craft beautiful patterns with a small hammer and some silver string onto iron plates or iron animals. It turns out that Meknes, Morocco is internationally known for its craftsmanship in this...

7 Derb el Magana, Fes, Morocco
When Mike Richardson exploded onto the fairly limited Fes dining scene in 2007, he took the medina by storm. Suddenly there was someplace where locals, tourists, and a handful of resident expats could convene. They came to view exhibitions by...

2 Place Batha, Fes 30206, Morocco
Over a sultan's feast of pastilla, marinated salads, tajines, and pastries at La Maison Bleue in the Fès medina, my husband and I were spellbound by the haunting voice of this oud player. The melancholy cadence of his instrument coalesced with the...

Quartier Ain Noqbi, Fès, Morocco
Some travelers are exhausted by the haggling in the souks of Morocco, by the barely-organized chaos of the medinas. In Fes, the stunning mosaic tile creations that are so typical all over the country can be bought directly from the artisans who...
