Fes Medina

Fes Tanneries

Listed on the World Heritage List in 1982, the Fès Medina is a maze of backstreets and nooks and crannies where travellers in search of originality will love exploring, without counting their steps or the time taken.

Visit the Kissaria trading centre where you will come across an incredible profusion of cotton, silk, brocade and carpets, but also fragrant stalls of fruit vegetables and spices. Explore the different souks of Fès.

The dyers’ souk where kilos of gold, blood red saffron threads are stacked. Further on is the pottery souk with ceramics piled up in the shops in a cobalt blue mosaic, the traditional colour of Fès. Do not miss the highly odorous tanners’ souk who still work leather the traditional way.
