Medina of Fez
#1 of 31 Sights & Landmarks in Fes
The medina of Fez is a magical place full of historical and cultural sites .. we visited the souks, the universities, the medersas, the mosques and the tanneries .. everything in the medina is great :)
We had two tours here whilst staying in a Médina Riad , a foodie one and a view of the hidden Médina , both were amazing and this place just goes about its daily life and we were privileged to witness it.

Borj Nord
#9 of 31 Sights & Landmarks in Fes
We went up on a Friday at about 4pm and visited the military museum for half an hour as well (10DM entry, an interesting selection of exhibits for a quick browse, and a stunning view from the roof).
The rooftop views are amazing and give you a great sense of how the old city was built (and defended).
