Aladdin's world


Fes (or Fez) is the third largest city of Morocco, located in the North of the country. The ancient walled city (Medina) of Fez is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and is one of the best preserved in the Arab world.

Fes may be a bustling city in modern day Morocco, but traveling here brings you back in time. If you can ignore the tourist crowds and use your imagination, this is the world of Aladdin and Ali Baba. The web of intricate alleys in the medieval old quarter is where you will find most of the city's attractions: gates, palaces, mosques, gardens and souks - all hidden away for you to explore and discover.
