Its medina is a labyrinth of narrow streets with houses, shops and workshops that includes more than 150 neighborhoods, and each of them has its mosque, its Koranic school, its bakery etc …
Fez hidden within its walls abobe palaces, mansions, mosques and gardens that are like pools of peace that survive among the noise of its streets, for this reason when you walk you have to observe each gate well because if it is half open you can take the pleasure surprise that inside you find a different world.
The best known monuments are the Moulay Idris Mosque (9th century, rebuilt in the 13th century), the tomb of the city’s founder, the Qarawiyin Mosque (founded in 859 and extended until the 13th century), the Medersa Bu ‘ Inaniyya, a residence for students of the Koran that was built in 1355 and the mosque of the Andalusians (founded in 860 and enlarged in 1200).

From there you will observe the fabric of the city, the walls of the houses, the gloom of its streets, the pasty color of its houses, which have been anchored with its appearance since its founding.
