Fez el-Bali Travel Guide

Fez el-Bali

Fez el-Bali is a living medieval city, crafts workshop, and market that has changed little in the past millennium. With no cars allowed and some 1,000 very narrow derbs (dead-end alleys), it beckons the walker on an endless and absorbing odyssey. Exploring this honeycomb of ancient alleyways with often chaotic crowds, steep inclines, and pitted cobblestone steps is a challenging adventure. Fez isn't really yours, however, until you've tackled it on your own, become hopelessly lost a few times, and survived to tell the tale.
