Fez Morocco Culture

Morocco's spiritual capital is full of visitors and travelers are reaping the rewards, but tourists often overlook the imperial city of Fez in favor of Marrakech. Tourism in Morocco continues to grow, making it a perfect destination for those who could not resist its charm. Here is the last post of our 10-day trip, which showed us the beautiful city of FeZ. The renovated boutique hotel was on its way to Fe Z, and the travelers reaped the rewards.

Although there are many places to visit in Morocco, Fez is the perfect place to experience the culture of the ancient city and its rich cultural heritage. It is very cheap, unlike the rest of Morocco, and the shopkeepers are happy to show you their wares, so it is easy to drop by and save some money. FeZ is a beautiful city full of history, culture and a great destination for tourists and locals alike.

What makes Fez special is the huge medieval medina, which is one of the most beautiful places in Morocco. The first thing you see when you walk from the main street Fez - el - Bali into the city is a huge square with a lot of shops and restaurants. Known for its labyrinthine passages populated by pedestrians and occasionally a donkey, the medinas of FeZ, known as Fe -El - bali, feel like relics from another era.

In 1276 the Marinids were founded by sovereign Abu Youssef Yacoub and the new city of Fez - Jedid was founded. The city walls erected at that time, which still form the ground plan of today's FeZ - El - Bali, were erected and it developed into one of the largest cities in the world. In the 13th century, the city itself took the form of a city wall, which is still shaped by its outlines.

At that time, Fez, which was one of the four imperial cities of the country, along with Marrakech, Rabat and Meknes, was the capital of Morocco and is now the holder of this title. Today you can visit Morocco to discover the history and culture of this ancient city and its people, as it is very important in history. It is known as the Athens of Africa and Mecca of the West and as an important tourist destination in Morocco and the Middle East.

At that time Fez el Jdid (New Fez) was founded by the Marinids dynasty in the 13th century. This monumental tomb is the site of the tomb of King Abdelaziz II of Morocco, ruler of Fezzan, from the 13th to the 15th century, when they established their rule in Morocco and made Fez their capital. Rabat is now the final capital, but it remains the spiritual capital of culture and crafts in this country and has not lost its role as capital, even though it has been overtaken by Marrakech and Meknes.

At all times Fez has maintained its function as an Islamic cultural centre due to its prestigious past and present and its role as a cultural centre for the whole of Morocco.

A virtual tour of "Jewish Fez," based on the perceptions and comments of Muslim residents, can illustrate the many ways in which it is labeled "Jewish." Traces of Judaism can be seen in the new colonial town of Nouvelle in the southwest, in the modern town of Fassis, where most of the Fassis live today, and in its eastern suburbs. In the northeast is the historic center of the city, the old town with its old synagogue and the synagogue complex.

My personal favorite place in Fez is the ancient Madrasa, better known as Bou Inania Madrassa. Known in Morocco as Medersa al-Attarine, this educational building is one of the most beautiful in Fez. Moroccan cultural scene that reflects the complexity of the scene: some are traditional, some modern, but all were traditional.

Founded in the eighth century by the Wattas, the first royal family to rule Morocco, Fez became the capital of Morocco and developed into a commercial and cultural centre. In 1471 it was led by a new dynasty of Blessed Watta, who founded the kingdom of Fez, and by the new population that emerged from the Portuguese. This spawned one of the most important cities in Morocco - the city of Casablanca, but in that time Fezzan really became a cultural and intellectual centre. It was a centre of trade and traditional crafts and until the late 19th century the only place in the world where felt hats were made.

In 1912, Fez was the capital of Morocco, and although political power may have passed to Rabat, it was still perceived as the cultural and spiritual center of the country. Although Marrakech became the new capital of Morocco, FeZ with its mosques and universities was in the spotlight.
