Fes

IMPERIAL CITY

Significantly the first Imperial city of Morocco, the passing of the centuries has adorned it with extraordinary treasures. It is home to the worlds’ first university. Viewed from above it is a maze of buildings, with 9,400 alleys perfectly organised in seeming chaos.
Smiths, potters, carpenters, glaziers, cobblers, spinners, goldsmiths, tailors, perfumers, weavers and tanners work in just the same way as they did 900 years ago.
Imposing doors guard this medieval Medina and all its inhabitants. It is the oldest and biggest Medina in the world. It is only the call to prayer from the Mosques every Friday that temporarily stops the bustle. You can buy anything from sweets, djellabas (long loose fitting robe) cumin, lambs and slippers to beautiful antiques. Golden belts for brides or a simple bunch of coriander – all and everything can be acquired in the Medina after the obligatory negotiation with the seller has taken place. You sit down together and after talking about various other subjects, the sale is closed with a handshake. In order to enable the five senses to truly capture the essence of Fez one
should not be in a hurry or have a plan. Beyond the initial impression of noise, chaos and hubbub, there is a spiritual and cultural city which will entrance you. Remember, its walls have witnessed so much history. The constant hustle and bustle is just background music for this Monument.
