If someone asked you “what is your favorite thing about Fes?” what would you answer? We know that according to your answer you may find the best Morocco Tour that will suit your needs. The fact is that Morocco is famous for many things like historical places or the different activities you are able to do. Also, there are places that you can visit in order to get the creative side of this beautiful city.
Thanks to the modernization and big cities, there are some activities that are easily forgotten but not this time in Morocco. If you visit Fes you will hear the word “artisanal” and you will realized that this work has not been forgotten yet. If you visit the weaver’s souk in the medina, you will see a man working at a large wooden loom, creating beautiful things with creativity like bedspreads, robes and scarves. The medina is definitely a different word in which you are going to find creative people working hard. Here, you will not find donkeys so you will hear shouts that will warn you to get out of their way. This place is an active center of commerce and if you want something you can tell they and they will help you.
Kairouine Mosque is another great option if we talk about historical, important and beautiful places. In case you do not know the meaning of the word Mosque, is a holy place in which people pray, and it is not allowed for people who are no Muslims. The Kairouine Mosque is the oldest mosque in Morocco. Even though tourists are not allowed to enter, they can still take a look at the place and they will enjoy looking at the architecture and the interior in which you are going to find two beautiful chandeliers. It has a beautiful courtyard and it is beautiful even if you look at it from the outside. This place is like a palace, it has beautiful fountains and the lounges are huge. You should visit this place, anyway you would not want to miss visiting the second biggest Mosque of Morocco.
Not everything around Fes are related to old places and historical places. If you are doing the Morocco Tours there is a great recommendation of places that you should visit. One excellent recommendation is visiting the Restaurant Número 7. It is contemporary and its decoration will make you think that you are in another city for a while. This restaurant is sophisticated and it offers really tasty food. Some people say this restaurant is expensive and they take too long to serve food. Besides that, being here is a culinary show. Actually, this kind of restaurants are difficult to find in Fez, so you will visiting a unique place. Sometimes, food is not usual or at least it is not what you eat every day, but it is worth it, every dirham is worth it.
If you are interested in learning new things, there is a place that you can visit to do that. The Tanners’ Quarter is a different experience and not all people enjoy this. Maybe it is because of the smell, or the workers treading skins in dyeing pits, but the good thing is that you will know something new, you will understand how skins are processed and this is interesting after all. Be sure to visit the biggest Tanner and also be sure to take your mint –they will give a mint before entering the place- to enjoy the experience even more.
So, if you visit these places, the Morocco Tours are going to be amazing, do not lose the chance!
