Fez el-Djedid Travel Guide

Fez el-Djedid

Fez el-Djedid (New Fez) lies southwest of Bab Boujeloud between Fez el-Bali and the Ville Nouvelle. Built after 1273 by the Merenid dynasty as a government seat and stronghold, it remained the administrative center of Morocco until 1912, when Rabat took over the role and diminished this area's visibility and activity. The three distinct segments of Fez el-Djedid consist of the Royal Palace in the west, the Mellah or Jewish Quarter in the south, and Muslim District in the east.
