Medina of Fes Jun 14, 2005
The Medina is the reason people come to Fes. A Medina is a walled part of a city, that was built to be a maze; today the confusion serves as a great tourist function while in the past it served as a way to confuse invaders.
If you enter the medina be sure to know the name of the hotel. You will get lost, which is part of the fun. Luckily when you do get lost people will be helpful and happily guide you out.
The medina is also closed off to cars, which is pretty swank. That means there will be folks riding around donkeys the most notable ones are the "coke mules".
The main part of the medina worth seeing are the many souks, which are markets. They are conected by narrow streets. There is one specalizing in fruits and spices and one for gold, and brass. Also there are lots of masques, hammans ( bath houses), bakeries, and University of Al-Karaouine which is the oldest university still operating, eat your heart out havard!
The one thing your nose will notice are the leather factories.... gross!
Well I'm done blabbin and will let the photos do the talking!
