Travel Tips for Fes

Crashing out to Andalusian Music after Lunch

by JamalMorelli

Crashing out to Andalusian Music after Lunch

After eating bastilla, when you are feeling full, grab one of those fruits that will be offered after and get comfy on one of our famous hard sofas. If the household is traditonal Fassi, you are very likely going to be lullabied with Andalusian Music, which, like most everything else significant in Morocco, comes from Fes.

Ash Sherabliyin Mosque

by barryg23

Just one of the many mosques in teh medina, Ash Sherabliyin Mosque sticks in my mind as we passed it during the call to prayer. Though we weren't allowed enter, it was interesting to see the men hurying to the mosque as the call went out and we did get to look inside the doors. The mosque takes its name from the slipper makers who work in this area.

Traditional Andalusian Music

by keeweechic

Having dinner here can also include a floor show at an extra price which consists of an Andalusian band playing an assortment of traditional instruments such as a bendir (tambourine) darbouka (hand drum) a lute and a kamanja.

Dar Batha Museum

by barryg23

Dar Batha was my favourite of the Fes museums, not so much for its collection, but for the buildings and gardens. Most of the exhibits were standard Moroccan museum pieces - pottery, furniture, etc, though there was interesting section of old photographs of people. This is quite strange to see in a museum in a muslim country as most art is abstract and depictions of people are frowned upon.

Chouaras Tanneries

by barryg23

While they make for great pictures, the Tanneries, where the animal skins are cleaned and dyed, must be a horrible place to work. The smell here was bad enough in February, just imagine what it's like during a long, hot summer. Furthermore, while tour guides love to bring tourists here and explain all about the tanning process, its traditions and how it hasn't changed fro centuries, what you don't often hear is that the workers are paid a pittance from an early age and that many of them develop skin and respiratory diseases.

Nevertheless, it was fascinating to see this type of work being carried out. The Chouaras tanneries are at the Eastern end of the medina and the best views are from the leather shops overhead. And while the vats of dye look lovely from a distance, just remember that they are made up of a variety of horrible ingredients such as animal urine, pigeon poo, animal brains, sulphuric acid......That was enough for me to hear, I was happy enough to take my pictures from a distance.
