Fez


One of Morocco's Imperial Cities and past capitals, Fez (locally spelled Fes) positively exudes culture and history, especially its emblematic medieval medina, a huge, no-car warren that can at times seem overwhelming to some visitors but entrances them all. Those who wander the narrow alleys can discover the city's palaces, hammams, mosques, market stalls, and pair of madrassas, Islamic schools dating back to the 14th century, both with intricate façades carved from cedar and adorned with elaborate tilework. Another highlight is the 11th century tewara leather tannery, one of the oldest in the world.
