Founded in 789 A.D. by Idris I and converted in the kingdom’s capital by his son, Idris II, Fes was from the beginning an important learning and spreading centre of the Islam, as it’s vouched by its religious centres, some of them, like the Kairouyine mosque close to the Karueein University, are some of the oldest mosques of all Africa. Along with the Muslim population, there has always been an important Jew community in the mellah of the city, which unfortunately has drastically decreased its number since the independence of Morocco in 1956. This city has traditionally been famous for its tanneries and for the production of the so-called “Fes hats”. It’s important to visit here the ancient medina or Fes el Bali, UNESCO´s World Heritage, which at the moment holds the record for being the widest pedestrian urban zone of the world. Its rambling and narrow streets will guide us to magnificent places like the el-Qaraouiyyîn mosque, the colourfully tanneries, the Nort Fortress, the es-Sahrij madrasa, its numerous souks and a thousand places more to discover. Outside of the ancient medina we can find places like the Marinid Tombs or the Mellah.
Nuestro buen amigo YUNES, Alonso del desierto, para sus amigos de Alicante. Un chaval estupendo que se puede confiar con él.
La verdad es que es dificil destacar algo de nuestro viaje a marruecos porque ahi que ir para descubrir todos los lugares diferentes que puedes encontrar. Toda la hospitalidad y amabilidad de sus gentes. Gracias a todos en especial a Jonas, Hasan etc, etc que hicieron de nuestro viaje una experiencia inolvidable. Por supuesto volveremos. Gracias por todo.

We visited Morocco last year and me with one of the representatives of Africa Adventures Yunes by chance. He offered to help us and we were a bit reluctant at first. I must say I am so glad that we took up his offer as a guide. He was brilliant, he took us to see places we would never have gone to in Morocco. I would highly recommend him.
