The Medina

The Medina, the Old Town of Fes, is a maze-like district holding many surprises for passionate buyers, so come here for handicrafts, carpets or leather products. Be prepared for bargaining, as there rarely exists any fixed price.


Fès is a wonderland of shopping, with endless stalls in the medina, and quite a few there in particular. It is always expected that you will bargain over prices, and most shopkeepers give discounts for buying more than one item – also, the discount will grow with every additional item purchased.
