The Medina of Fez is not only referred to as Morocco’s cultural and spiritual center, but it is also one of the country’s imperial cities. Today UNESCO has designated the entire Medina of Fez as a world monument.

The Fez Medina is an incredible place made up of beautiful historical buildings that date back to medieval times. These well preserved buildings include mosques, palaces, fountains and residential homes. The Fez Medina is also one of the most complex labyrinth cities in the world, with houses and shops built close together along tangled streets making it near impossible for visitors to find their own way around.

Its narrow alleys house hundreds of merchants and craftsmen selling a range of products such as dates, fish, spices, copper urns, carpets and musical instruments. The narrow alleys are busy with local people and tourists brave enough to find their way through the maze. Walking through the centre is like going back centuries.

What makes the Medina of Fez so extraordinary is the fact that these exclusive properties are available for people to rent during the holiday seasons. Until recently this experience was not an option, but in recent years a number of these ancient properties have been restored and made available for people to rent. Visitors now get an opportunity to experience how people lived in the 9th century. Those visiting the Fez Medina in this way are assisted by staff who care for their every need as well as maintaining these world heritage buildings. They are also provided with the use of a Moroccan cell phone during their stay.
