In the Heart of Fes ... Part 2

So we’re back in the Fes medina! 

It’s narrow windings streets make it a great place to get lost for the afternoon. 

Fes is known for it’s authentic leather tanneries. Men work the skins in these big clay basins under a burning sun. Everything is done by hand, the same way it has been for hundreds of years. 

Along with Marrakech, Fes is the heart of Moroccan artisan work. Here you can still find artisans who carry on the precious traditions of crafting objects.

The old fortifications hug the city and give the scenery a lot of charm.

Is anyone hungry of a little street snack?

Fes holds one of the king’s Royal Palaces. 

These are probably some of the most luxurious doors I have seen in all of Morocco.  

That’s it for Fes. Next stop… Agadir!
