Fodor's Expert Review Jardin Jnan Sbil
Gardens play an important role in Moroccan culture, and this gorgeous green space just outside the medina walls is one of the oldest in Fez. Once part of the Royal Palace, it was donated to the city in the 19th century by Sultan Moulay Hassan. Because of its importance, the garden recently underwent four years of restoration to return it to its former splendor, and it reopened to the public in 2011. Now a stroll around its shady pathways, with time to admire its many towering palms, rose bushes, lakes, and fountains, is the perfect escape from the medina’s hubbub.
