Travel Fes: A UNESCO World Heritage Site

[sc_youtube video_id=”i8ZzYbGIflc?rel=0″ width=”870″ height=”489″]

Donkeys hooves knock against the stone, while people scurry through the Medina, getting lost in the maze like streets. Something is different about Fes. Listen closely, there are no honking horns, putting motors or screeching brakes. That’s right, inside the fortified walls and labyrinth allies there are no cars.

The best way to explore the city is by foot. Tourists should make sure to swing by the Dar Batha Museum, the home to Moroccan Arts. The display of handwoven Berber carpets, cobalt blue and ceramic pottery, embroideries, ancient astrolabes, and zelliges, elaborate mosaic and ceramic tiles, is a transport back in time.
