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...
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...
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...
Fes El Bali, Fes, Morocco
Many local artisans live and work in the seldom-visited Al Andalus neighborhood of Fes El Bali, the old medina. Among them are the wood carvers who daily ply their craft in rustic and simple surroundings yet produce the highly artistic and...
Rue Sanaa Mhidli, Fès 30050, Morocco
Camel heads, cassette tapes, house slippers, mangoes, American coins, thumbtacks, almonds and olives. Any market anywhere is an adventure and in this ever winding and chaotic mess of a market had my head spinning and my eyes in a constant pin...
Rue Talaa Kebira, Fes, Morocco
The Attarin Madrasa in Fez – Old Town (Medina). So silent and beautiful – admission was included as part of our Intrepid Travel tour. Elegant cedar wood doors – intricately carved. Ceramic detailed tiles and carved plaster with words from the...
Volubilis stands today as the most southern Roman city in the history of that empire. It suffered its most recent damage in the earthquake of Lisbon in 1755. I recommend checking out its "red lights" district where graffiti and stone commemorate...
12 Derb El Miter، Fes 30000, Morocco
Fes, Morocco has many beautiful attractions from the tanners in the old Medina to the world renown ceramic craftsman, but none stand more impressive as an edifice than the Golden Gates to the Royal Palace.
A stunning converted riad in the heart of the old Fez Medina! The same hot and cold combination of intensely flavored veggies and beans to start, followed by lamb tajine – this was on top of a bed of couscous with a variety of stewed squash,...
Quartier des Tanneurs, Fès 30000, Morocco
The dyeing vats at Chouara—as well as at the city’s other tanneries—are among the Fes medina’s most iconic sights. The ancient craft of tanning and dyeing, in all its visceral authenticity (cow urine and pigeon poop are...
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...
شارع 2 مارس، Agadir 80090, Morocco
