“Special square in the medina”
Review of Place Seffarine

Ranked #36 of 86 things to do in Fes
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

You can hear the metal clanging from so at least you can make your way to the sound.

The square is filled with all the metal workers and they work all day providing nice attraction to see while you sip that mint tea. Somehow the clanging and banging has a soothing impact to me in the middle of the medina. There is a tea shop at the square and we stopped by to people watch and catch our breath.

This is the square of metalworkers, and you can say by the sound they are producing as they are working with metal. Lovely square which, unfortunately offers only one attraction at the moment, the Qaraouine library where they let you peek in and see the impressive staircase. The Seffarine medersa is unfortunately closed for restoration at the moment. You can get here easily from Place Rcif and the famous Qaraouine mosque is just behind the library.
