UNESCO declared the Medina of Fez one of the world’s cultural treasures. Move on to the Nejjarine Square. This square, with its splendid and unusual fountain, takes its name from the Souk Nejjarine (Carpenter’s Souk), which is situated behind a wooden door in a narrow street below the square.

Fez is also known for its tanneries. The colourful tanner’s quarter, spreads out along the banks of the Oued Fez. The view from the rooftops is a memorable one.

The Koutoubia Mosque is one of the best examples of Moorish art, combining apparent simplicity with superb craftsmanship and restrained luxury. Its minaret, 252 feet high is certainly one of the most impressive sights in Marrakech. During the 16th century, several mausoleums were built to accommodate the tombs of thirteen Saadian rulers. The Saadian Tombs, with its delicate decoration and pure architectural lines, are an outstandingly beautiful feature of architecture.
