Karaouiyne Mosque

Fès has many beautiful buildings, and the Karaouine Mosque is definitely one of the most impressive ones. While the University of Al-Karaouine is located at its mosque, established in 859, there are also beautiful embellishments and decorations to discover.

Do & See

As the third largest city in Morocco, Fès has a vast cultural heritage and a historic value for the region, and in the three districts Medina, Fès el Jedid and Ville Nouvelle, an ancient past meets the modern world: the decades of French rule in Morocco have left a unique influence that is visible in the infrastructure and cuisine. Be prepared that you can easily lose yourself in the many sights of the maze-like and car-free Old Town that, on the other hand, is absolutely worth the adventure. As the Medina is not for tourists only, due to its integral part in daily life, and in conducting business, you can here experience the traditional life.
