Fes is in the north-eastern part of Morocco and is known as being the country’s cultural capital. Strolling down the colorful streets, tourists love admiring the high-walled medina, the crumbling architecture of the past, and the historic monuments at almost every corner.
One of the top things to do is to walk around Fes el-Bali, which is over 9,000 alleyways inaccessible by car. These alleyways offer hundreds of shops selling Moroccan tea, fragrant dates, and a variety of spices. Fes is also known for its tanneries. Tourists can visit Chaouwara Tanneries, the largest leather workshop in Fes built in the 11th century. Some other great attractions are the architect at Bou Inania Medersa, the green space at Jardin Jnan Sbil, and the Nejjarine Museum.
Morocco is known for its riads, which were once estates of the wealthiest, but are now converted into accommodations. Luckily you do not have to be of the wealthiest to stay in these today. Here we will talk about a few different accommodations, hotels and riads, that are nice and affordable.
