The entrance to Fondouk Nejjarine and the fountain are beautiful tile- and plasterwork. The fondouk can be visited for a small fee. The house is really worth seeing. The exibition so, so! Take a little time just to watch the square and to see the life in it. People are coming to the fountain to wash dishes and fruits. Remember... More

We came across many fountains as we wandered the medina however this was definitely the loveliest and most restored. Right next to the Nejjarine museum (wood museum) so not hard to locate. Tea shops in the square so nice spot to take a break.

One of the cleanest fountains in the medina. It is located just in front of the Nejjarine museum and provides a nice background for pictures. Once in a while you see the locals actually getting water from the fountain but we didn't attempt to use it since we weren't sure if that is polite to do. Very nice color classic... More

It took a while to realize that Moroccon fountains are not like Rome fountains. Set in a small plaza of interest itself, although too much of tourist stuff for sale.

Previous reviewers have pretty much said what needs to be said so I'll just add - pay attention so that you don't just walk by this and so many other fountains, carvings, etc. Stay in the now!!

Since it is not marked, it can be easily overlooked on the way to the Fondoq. Its a beautiful fountain with a lot of decorative details. Lovely!

Surrounded by wood working stalls and the Nejjarine museum, there is a constant flow of pedestrian traffic through the square past the fountain that was in almost continuous use. A beautifully tiled fountain.

There is a fountain in every different quarter of the old town. They are quite incredible and well worth a quick look. You will come accross them whilst wandering around.
