Medina of Fez | Morocco

Fez (or Fes) is the second largest city of Morocco, with a population of 1.1 million. Founded in the 9th century, the Medina of Fez is considered as one of the most extensive and best conserved historic towns of the Arab-Muslim world. Medina of Fez is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Located behind a high wall, the medina has narrow, car-free alleys where hundreds of merchants and craftsmen sell a range of products such as dates, fish, spices, copper urns, carpets and musical instruments. Fez is also famous for its leather products and most of it comes from the leather bazaar (souq). The souq is home to three ancient leather tanneries.
