Fez is known as the spiritual capital of Morocco and home to one of the oldest medinas in the Arab world. Created at the crossroads of two caravan routes, from the Atlantic in the west, and the Mediterranean in the north, it was, and still is revered as an artistic, spiritual and cultural city, with an abundance of music, good food and historic buildings.
