  • 2 Fes Medina Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    Rue Talaa Kebira

    The Fes medina is a great place to explore, and you'll probably get lost here no matter how good your sense of direction. That's also part of its charm. A few lines are scarcely enough to evoke all the treasures hidden inside. We urge you to get a co..

  • 8 Attarine Medersa Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    R. Talaa Kebira

    You can't help but be impressed by the virtuosity of the decoration in the Attarine Medersa, another treasure left by the Marinids. The zellige tiles, sculpted wood and finely worked plaster are a delight to the eyes. This medersa was built in the 14..
