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 be missed.

When we visited, nobody went there so we got liberty taking pictures and enjoying the view and the ruins. Beautiful!

Amazed that the buildings and tombs where still so well maintained. Great stories. Find a good guide

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, so of course there were a few men up there spouting the usual 'sexy' garbage - but this is the only place where boys (around 10 years old) actually threw rocks. One just missed my daughter.
Though we took a taxi up there, as it was a hot day, we realised that it's actually much closer than it looks and easily walkable from Bab Boujloud.

For coming back, we had been warned by a local friend not to walk down the hill out of sight of the road, at any time of the day, in case of mugging (the suburb up on that the hill is apparently a 'less desirable' area. We found the walk back down along the road to the Medina quiet and fine- not many people around as it was Friday.
I would like to go back there at sunset, but on the advice of our friend would not walk back, even on the road, later in the day
