Guide to Riads and Guest Houses in Marrakesh, Essaouira & Fez
Category Archives: Riads Fez
The city of Fez is a jewel of Spanish-Arabic civilisation. Fez is the country’s ancient political and administrative capita, and remains as its religious and intellectual centre. lFez does not reveal its secrets easily. It has a secretive, shadowy presence, and it’s secrets need to be discovered gradually with reverence for the past.
It has the largest Medina of the Arab world, which make the labyrinths of Marrakech look tame, and bustles with captivating sounds, fragrances and colours. The absence of bikes and mopeds make the Medina quiet although here the danger is galloping mules. It’s sloping hills provide a magnificent backdrop for photographs which encapsulate the life of a time gone past. It is near to Meknes and the ancient roman town of Volubilis.
