Fez Morocco Events
As the summer heat conquers Morocco, coastal cities come alive with all kinds of eclectic festivals. There are numerous Moroccan festivals to enjoy, from dancing and singing in traditional costumes to music, dance, food, music and more. Depending on local conditions and harvest, some are held in different parts of the country, where Moroccans celebrate their art and popular traditions.
In June, the Festival of Sacred Music of Fez is a whirling dervish, a festival of music, dance, music and dance. The festival is held every year to document the most important traditions of sacred music in the world, such as dancing, singing and singing sacred songs.
Fez retains its function as an Islamic cultural centre at all times, both in its prestigious past and in its present. It was also the time when Fez established itself as a cultural and intellectual centre, starting with the founding of the city's first university, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and the establishment of a university for Islamic studies. The conflict between the Fatimid Shiites and the Umayyads was also played out elsewhere in Morocco, but the best of it was established at the festival and extended over 11 centuries to gather the most important scholars, scholars and scholars from across the Middle East and North Africa.
One of Fez's hostels regularly hosts family dinners for guests, while another serves as a creative hub that keeps abreast of the latest art and culture offerings from the city and its residents. In Marrakech, there is a folk art festival, concerts and one of the most popular events, the Arts and Sciences Festival, is held.
This gives guests the opportunity to immerse themselves in Moroccan culture and enjoy Moroccan songs and dances for a few days. The festivities continue in Fez with the two main Moroccan festivals, which aim to honour and present the best of Moroccan culture. In the middle of the month, the Marrakech International Film Festival will award prizes in various categories to the "best" Moroccan films.
The event is organised by Nawarra, a graduate of the University of Casablanca, who currently lives in Leeds in the UK. She has an MBA in Art and Drama from the University of Casablancas and an internship as a certified tourist guide in Morocco.
Nawarra has been travelling to Morocco for two years, first to Agadir in 2013 and Casablanca in 2014. Both trips took place in Fez, which can be written about in Fez, but not in this blog post.
Like the rest of Morocco, Fez is very cheap, so it is easy to visit and save money, and it offers visitors a different view of Moroccan life. Chefchaouen is a tourist-oriented city in the south and east of the country, near the border with Algeria. It is a small town with about 2,000 inhabitants, but a great tourist destination.
Fez is still one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country and the capital of Morocco. The medina of Fez, known as Fez el Bali, feels like a relic from another era, as it is a labyrinthine corridor populated by pedestrians and, of course, the occasional donkey.
The Medina began in the eighties of the last century and the city walls erected at that time still form the ground plan of Fez el Bali. Much of what we are looking at here was established in the 13th and 14th centuries in the Moroccan capital, when it replaced Marrakech as its capital, but it was not until the 1340s, when 800 refugee families from Cordoba in Spain settled in Fez, and a few years later 2,000 families from Tunisia followed, that it really began to grow. The new city of Fez Jedid was founded and grew into one of the largest cities in the world with a population of over 1.5 million people and an area of 2 million hectares.
The citadel is considered one of the most important monuments of the city of Fez and is also the site of a number of pilgrimage sites for Jews in Morocco. The most popular are the tombs of Rabbi Yehouda and Benatar in Fez, which are a pilgrimage site for Jewish travelers to Morocco, but there are many other places that interest Jews and Jews of all ages. Mellah in FeZ dates back to the Middle Ages, when very few Jewish people lived there, most of them moving to Casablanca, France and Israel. In 2005, more than 3,000 Jews lived in Casabanca and 80 remained in the city to live in a new town, the Ville Nouvelle.
The old town is separated from the palace by the modern French part, and the medina of Fez is located on the other side of the Wadi Fes, which flows into the Sebou River. The fes in FeZ is also spelled as Arabic Fas (Fas) and is the name of an area in the city of Fz.
