Guided tour of Fes

The fountain in En Nejjarine square is the most beautiful in Fez with its decor of
zelliges and its cedar wood canopy. The Medersa El Attarine is also a pretty
representation of Hispano-Moorish architecture (comparable to the Medersa Ben
Youssef in Marrakech (although less well maintained!).
The souks are surely the great interest of Fez. The visit of the district of
Tanners are the most impressive. The Tanners are barefoot in
mostly natural dye tanks. The skins have been previously
stripped of their hair in lime baths for weeks. The
great spectacle of this work can be seen at the top of the shops
tanners.
Accept the mint leaves at the entrance offered by the merchant, in order to withstand the foul smells that you will encounter above the vats !!
Souk of dyers, henna, jewelry, blacksmithing, carpentry, everything is made in this wonderful city.

    Stop At: Medina of Fez, Fes 30000 Morocco

    After Bab Bou Jeloud, begins the largest and most beautiful medina in the Maghreb, once separated into
    around twenty small medinas. Narrow and dark alleys, less pleasant but more
    authentic that the two main arteries are constantly expanding, so much so that Fez El-Bali
    has almost a thousand derbs (dead ends).

    Also known as the Mererside Medersa, the latter is the largest in Fez, its
    construction lasted from 1350 to 1357 under the aegis of Sultan Abu Inan. His sculpted plasters, his
    cedar woodwork today discolored, its decor in bronze, marble and onyx, its windows often
    surmounted by stalactites, the mukarnas, are characteristic of the Marinid architecture. The walls of
    interior patio are decorated with zelliges topped with stucco and a canopy of green tiles. The room of
    prayer has notably superb old stained glass windows and a magnificent minbar. Still active,
    this madrassah nowadays serves as a mosque, and represents one of the rare religious buildings of the
    Morocco open to non-Muslims.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Fontaine Nejjarine, Fes Morocco

    This square takes its name from the cabinetmakers' souk which stands behind a wooden door in an alley
    below. Its fountain is splendid and unusual. At the bottom of the square, the "Fondouk" (house
    En-Najjarine, probably built in the 17th century, it has recently been transformed into
    mosque and opens onto a facade with extremely rich decoration.

    Stop At: La Belle Vue de la Tannerie, 64 Derb Sidi Bouaza, Fes Morocco

    On the edge of the Fez wadi which provides the water necessary for the treatment of hides, the tanners' district
    de Chouara displays its bright colors. From the terraces of the surrounding houses, the view plunges into
    a series of red and fawn dye basins. Skins are drying everywhere in the sun. "Wool,
    skins, wax are shipped in large quantities to Europe; the most beautiful leathers remain in Fez where,
    worked by skillful workers, they are used to make belghas (sort of slippers), cushions,
    belts, luxury items that we come to buy from all over Morocco.


    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Fez Mellah, Fes Morocco

    This term designates in Morocco all the Jewish districts and comes from the word melh (salt). The mellah of Fez,
    considered the first in Morocco, was located near the current Jamaï Palace, in the El
    Yahoudi located north of the city. The district knew the animation of a life of work and prayer,
    around its small shops, its goldsmith workshops (a specialty of the Jews in the past), its
    synagogues or its Talmudic schools. It is now inhabited by a Muslim majority,
    mostly country people, freshly arrived in town. Among the historic buildings that have
    marked the seven centuries of Jewish life: the house of the Chief Rabbi, the Danan Synagogue and the
    Jewish cemetery which is located below the district.

    Important commercial building built in the 17th century, including the monumental door
    is unique in its structure, shape and decorative elements, has regained its beauty: warmth
    cedar wood, elegant arcades, but also revival of a central district of
    Medina. Around its foundouk, with its place, its fountain and the carpenters' souk, is
    the object of an exemplary restoration-rehabilitation. The Foundouk Nejjarine has become a museum
    wood where the woodwork of traditional architecture is exposed.
