Built in a valley, Fez is a city with charm; its medina is a World Cultural Heritage Site and is undoubtedly the most impressive in Morocco. The sounds, smells, artists and bustle of the streets of this wonderful city will captivate you and fill you with wonder. Fez is actually three cities in one. The new city, “Bali Fez” and “Jedid Fez" also known as the "New Fez" is an expansion of an earlier metropolis, which was ruled under the Benimerines dynasty in the thirteenth century.
Fez is home to one of the largest labyrinths, with more than 9,400 streets that wind in and out of market places. Wandering the labyrinth, you’ll notice how the artisans here separate themselves by trade with neighborhoods of craftsmen, potters, tailors and many more. Wander through Fez´s open air market and let your senses guide you through its narrow streets, many of which have no outlet, others completely covered, sending you back in time to when markets and bargaining were a way of life.
Since the streets are winding and very narrow and the houses very high, there isn’t much sunlight that makes its way down to the ground. Bursts of light and shadows dance along the walls of buildings amplifying the feeling of being in another world. Mirrors, perfumes, chickens, pigeons, silver, gold, slippers, sandals, djellabas, drums, vegetables, fruits, pottery, ceramics, cast iron, herbs, spices, King portraits, cereals, books, glassware and everything imaginable, it is all here. The donkeys’ constant clatter of carrying goods from various origins will transport you to an unknown magical world only to be broken by the cry of "balek" from the animals owner, alerting the pedestrians to “watch out” as the donkeys make their way through.
