Morocco - DESTINATIONS & HOTELS

Fez

Dating back to the 8th century, the imperial city of Fez was capital of Morocco for over 400 years and an intriguing centre of political and religious power. At its heart, the famous walled medina of Old Fez, Fès el-Bali, has changed little over the centuries and stands in stark contrast to the French-inspired “Ville Nouvelle” built pre-independence in the 1950’s. For visitors, Old Fez is the place to start, a UNESCO World Heritage site and a heady introduction to an ancient Arab world. Here as you pass though the Bab Boujeloud gate, you enter a labyrinthine clutter of medieval mosques, palaces and riads set amidst an intoxicating atmosphere of markets, souqs, workshops and tanneries. Narrow alley-ways reveal charming squares and fountains while all around the bustle of daily life is interwoven with exotic ingredients, heady scents and colourful bazaars.
