We climbed up (tiring in the sun), but the views were worthwhile. A friendly but very persistent bag salesman sold a bag to one of our party, but it was not expensive and worth the money for the local information he gave us.

Best views over the Medina. Some of the skins dyed at the tanneries are put up here to dry on sunny days.

We wandered to the tombs and the hill overlooking Fes during our exploration of the Fes medina. Skins of various sizes and colours drying on the hillside and on the walls of the ruins, the braying of donkeys the only sound breaking the silence, mules and their drivers coming to pick up loads of the skins - truly not to...

Although not much is left from the Merenid Tombs, the place allows for a breath-taking view of the old Medina! Worth the visit! Catch a petit-taxi.

This is a classic place to view Fes and beyond, and the Hotel Merenides is great for coffee/tea and cooling off after a bit of sightseeing. However be aware that not all the locals hanging around up in that area are the nicest sort for women to meet. There is a lot of general harrassment from men all around Fes,... More

Outside of the city, you should take a cab. Not much to see, but it is beautiful- read about it before you go as there are no signs of any kind- it has a gorgeous view of the city, and you can walk back into the medina (all downhill).

We alked from the Medina up some ticky slopes, past the goats and the skins drying. It was a lovely morning and what a fantastic view from the top. We sat a soaked up the view, were given a bit of a over view of the place by a passing bag saleman who was ok when we didn't purchase a... More
