Day 2: Fez Exploration Day
After Breakfast, join your full day guided tour of Fez. The imperial city of Fez is the city that most reflects the ancestral past of the Moroccan kingdom and its ancient civilization. It was and still remains the core of the intellectual and spiritual creativity, not only in Morocco, but also in the Islamic world. Fes houses the oldest university in the world, Al Quaraouiyyne and its ancient medina was classified as Universal Heritage by UNESCO in 1981.
Your exploration of the medina should start traditionally at the Bab Boujlloud Gate. The first monument to visit is the vast Bou Inania Medersa. As you continue along Talaa Kebira Street (big climb), you will particularly admire the Tijani Zaouïa (Zaouïa, sanctuary of a religious brotherhood) and the instrument makers' souk before arriving at the Mzara (shrine) of the ancient sovereign Moulay Idriss situated at the place where he took the decision to build the town. Once you have passed the Babouche vendors, you arrive in En-Nejjarine Square and the cabinetmakers' souk. The magnificent carved Foundouk (caravanserai) on the square houses the Museum of Wooden Arts and Crafts. The Kissaria (covered market), where jewellery and fine fabrics are on sold, is nearby (it is shut at night). Next to it, you can admire the most visited and revered attraction in Fes: the Zaouïa of Moulay Idriss, founder of the town. Your walk continues on to Es-Seffarine Square, the coppersmith square, and then to the tanners' quarter situated just before the Andalusian quarter with its mosque and the Es-Sahrij Medersa.
Medersas: A Medersa is a school where the Koran is taught along with all the classic subject of learning: mathematics, grammar, history, astronomy, medicine… In Morocco, and especially in Fes, Medersas have the important role of integrating students from other regions. Generally they are built around a central courtyard with a fountain.
El-Attarine: The Merenids built this masterpiece between 1323 and 1325. Its central courtyard is magnificently decorated. Its walls are covered with Sura engraved in wood or plaster. The fountain and marble columns are embellished with Zellige (tiled mosaic).
Bou Inania: This Medersa, built between 1350 and 1357, is the biggest in Fes. Pass through the magnificent entrance with its heavy copper work doors, and then be impressed by the abundance of earthenware, the refinement of the sculptured wood and plaster and the chiseled stalactites called Mukarnas, the hallmark of Merenid architecture. A canopy of typical Fes green tiles surmounts the onyx and marble courtyard.
