Sidi Bouloukat Djemaa el fna 53 Sidi Bouloukate، Marrakech 40000, Morocco
No matter what time of the day, sitting in a cafe on the edge of Jamaa el Fna, the central square in the old city of Marrakesh, is entertaining and inspirational. In the early morning its quieter, and dominated by orange juice vendors and people...
Fes El Bali, Fes, Morocco
The Medina in Old Fes, or Fes el Bali, is a bucket list experience. Enough beautiful, noisy, smelly, tasty anachronisms to give you whiplash. Abandon your need for control and get lost (its easy) as you wander through the modern 12th century. Just...
7 Derb el Magana, Fes, Morocco
At first glance, the narrow alley you have to maneuver to get to Café Clock -- does not look advisable. In fact, while walking down the path, I remarked to my friends, "This looks like a place in which we might find weed for sale." Yet 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...
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...
El Keddane, Fes, Morocco
Deep in the maze that is the city of Fes, lies Dar Anebar. It is both a restaurant and a Riad. With a traditional courtyard that has a fountain and multiple dining rooms off the main area, there are plenty of "nooks and crannies" hiding delightful...
Qasbah En Nouar, Fes, Morocco
Located in Fes's medina, Restaurant Sekaya is a great introduction to Moroccan cuisine, particularly for wary travelers. The ambience is great, the food is affordable and flavorful and they have what I believe to be the best mint tea in town. This...
Km 3 Rte Immouzzar, Fès 30050, Morocco
In the Fes Medina, Friday (Salat), The Quiet Day, has a completely different feel from other days, with most of the souks and cafes closed, and many more local families and out-of-town Muslims worshipping at the mosques. I passed men dressed in...
Following an early summer thunderstorm in Fes, a spectacular rainbow appeared over the ancient medina. Some structures in the medina date back nearly 1200 years to the original founding of Fes and it is fascinating to see them in combination with...
17 Derb El Gabasse، فاس 30000, Morocco
The metal working section of the medina is easy to find, follow the noise! Men sit around a fairly open square and literally pound the metal over forms to make bowls, tea servers, lamps, etc. The area is surrounded by vendors selling their wares.
