A small but nice Medina to visit.

This Medina is small but a good place to visit. It wasn't crowed and the vendors were friendly. Stop and buy some of the cookies and then have a mint tea at one of the cafe's... read more

I have been into this Medina, who is typical of moroccan architecture ! The most impressive thing that I remarked was the very important quantity of counterfeiting clothes ! If you want to buy some clothes at cheap prices... You won't disappointed ! Of course there are also a lot of vegetables, spicies and fruits to sell !

At a certain point, all the medinas begin to look the same. To change things up, we got a horse-drawn carriage ride around the exterior and saw the stables. SUPER fun.

We had a tasting tour in this market, and there were a lot of delicious Moroccan food to sample. Some even tried the camel burger.

This Medina is small but a good place to visit. It wasn't crowed and the vendors were friendly. Stop and buy some of the cookies and then have a mint tea at one of the cafe's just outside the Medina. It's right by the main gate that everyone visits and the granary and stables are also nearby.

The beautiful old market quarter in Meknes is a very unique attraction. It is historic in many ways but at its soul is still a shopping center that is very useful. I do recommend a guide for these Medinas simply because they have many halls and corridors that could get you lost.

The large square - Pl el-Hedim - is adjacent to the medina and this is where lots of the action is. We were hassled more here than anywhere else. The medina itself is relatively small and offers nothing more or less than any of the others. We were there on a Saturday and the crowds were enormous. It was very... More

Meknes pales in the shadow of Fez which is not all that far away. It has a huge market, and not all that many tourists.

Not as extensive as many other cities but worth a visit. The back streets are interesting to see the local life and maybe stop for a mint tea.

We had time on a beautiful Moroccan morning to wander through the many stalls offering all sorts of items, tagines, jewelery, etc.
