Fes or Fez, morocco

One day in fes is not enough

Fez was not a culinary hotspot for us; we opted to stay in the hotel, indulge in the traditional Moroccan hammam, and order food, which we do not recommend unless you can’t move!

Chouara Tannery

What we can recommend is that you buy leather in Fez. We visited the Chouara Tannery, the largest and oldest tannery in Fez, dating back to the 9th century. Hamid knows how to haggle! And the tannery is ready to bargain and create whatever color and style you want. Within an hour, we had a custom coat that cost $200.00.

Fez is recognized as the most ancient city in Morocco and stands as one of the largest and most well-preserved historic urban centers in the Arab-Muslim world. It has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. We barely scratched the surface and wished we had another day to explore Fez; one night was not enough.
