Soon the walls to the old medina came into site, and boy did it seem huge. I’ve only seen a handful of walled old cities in North America, Europe, and the Caribbean, but Holy Toledo (not, incidentally, a walled city), never had I seen anything this gigantic.
You could get lost in the narrow alleys of the Fes medina for DAYS—and some people do. The souks are one of the biggest draws for tourists—Fes is considered the artistic and cultural capital of Morocco and the souks provide the opportunity to see artisans working and to buy wares right from the source—but there is also a large bustling market, plenty of inexpensive tagine spots, architecture that will blow your mind, and history around every corner.
All this to say, pause to blink or catch your breath, and you’ll miss something playing out in the Fes medina. Go on—see for yourself! It's fabulous!
