Meknes : Michelin's recommendations
Moulay Ismaïl turned Meknes into an imperial city in the 17C and it owes its most beautiful buildings to him - on the same scale as the sultan’s overweening ambitions. The imperial city, with its superb vestiges, stretches south from the medina, animated by tireless activity in the craftsmen’s souks. The new town, separated from the historic section by the Boufekrane River, was built by the French in the early 20C. Meknes is a gem on the east-west axis stretching between Fes and Rabat, and is also just thirty kilometres from the Roman site of Volubilis.
