From its labyrinth-like souks to the splendour of the oldest degree-granting university in the world (the Qarawiyyin), it is a city full of hidden gems, which reveal itself to the wayfarer who fully embraces the city.
The second largest city in Morocco dubbed the ‘Athens of Africa’, Fes is home to one of the largest car-free urban areas, the old medina, Fes al-Bali, which is also a UNESCO world heritage site.
Whilst it is heralded for its various sites and attractions, it is after all, the people that make this city what it is. Its exterior, characterised by its buildings and monuments, behold a marvel to the eyes, but it is the interior, the people, which behold a marvel to the heart.
