Fez and the Middle Atlas Sights

Zaouia of Moulay Idriss I

Fodor's Review

This important shrine and mausoleum of the Idrissid dynasty's patriarch is off-limits to non-Muslims, marked by a wooden bar to restrict access. For a good view, climb to a vantage point overlooking the religious sanctuary—the hike up one of many hills through the town's surrounding alleys is invigorating and a symbolic bow to Morocco's secular and spiritual history.
