But they don't wear them here, they only make and dye them here. Somehow Drew resisted buying one .... So far. We started the day looking at one of the two military forts around the town. They were built not so much to defend the town but rather to attack it if the population got too unruly. It's one of the few forts seen with the cannons facing …
... that tour we never would have had even known these amazing buildings and fascinating history existed here. I attached some pictures below. I encourage you to Google pictures of the medina in Fez. Its so hard to describe, but essentailly it is hundreds of streets that have hundreds of little shops that sell everything from clothes to copper dishes to furniture to food. These shops are not at all what we have in the US though, ...
... as 11.30 am is their check out time. With the luggage done and the checkout process behind me, I ventured out into the streets after checking out. The sea front is very inviting at this time - blue skies, clear waters, two great cafes right on the beach. This becomes all very attractive suddenly, when you get a call from London that it is raining, cold and damp );

The city of Fez is now divided into three areas: Fez the old (the Medina), Fez the new (areas constructed north of the Medina and Fez the modern which was constructed during the French protectorate between 1912 and 1956.

Historical Traveler Reviews Riad Dar Cordoba Fes
We had a very comfortable stay at Dar Cordoba in Fes, which was the first stop on a 4-destination tour through Morocco. The riad is one big piece of artwork, with intricate tilework and carved plaster and wood everywhere you look. We upgraded from the smallest room to one of the suites after arrival; they are much roomier with very high ceilings and indirect light coming from the central courtyard. Breakfast was abundant and offered a lot of variety.
wow. Juan and his wife are the best hosts ever!!! on arrival we were greeted with mint tea and nibbles. Juan explained a lot about Fes and
Staying at Dar Cordoba, Fez
We had this most exciting experience in the Medina of Fez from May 9 till May 13. Dar Cordoba is a wonderful place to stay, with traditionally furbished well-kep rooms in a quiet environment. Its peace contrasts with the sparkling activity in the Medina and it is always nice to return to the Dar at the end of a long day of exploring, dialoguing, negotiating fair deals, ... Mr Moha Bara is a great host, always available, ready to offer 'welcome home tea', advising on places to visit, services to use, security precautions to be taken,... Breakfast contains lots of fresh fruit, a diversity of breads and cakes, etc. Only the pancakes are a bit less.
Highly recommended and thank you Moha!
Ma femme et moi-même avons séjourné au Dar Cordoba en septembre 2006 et c'était super.
Little Alhambra in Fès
Fès war die erste Station unseres 14tägigen Marrokko-Aufenthaltes. Als wir nach 7stündiger Horror-Bahnfahrt von Casablanca endlich vor der Tür standen, erwartete uns ein kleines Paradies hinter den Mauern. Mit einem so herzlichen und warmen Empfang hatten wir überhaupt nicht gerechnet. Juan und Angeles haben sich dort wahrhaft ein kleines Paradies erschaffen, das von der Architektur beinahe an die Alhambra erinnert. Wir fühlten uns dort bei Freunden und so wohl, dass wir traurig waren, als wir wieder abreisen mussten. Ganz großes Komliment auch an Mohar, die unheimlich sympathische und fleißige 2. Hand von Juan.
Wir würden uns freuen, bald mal wieder zu kommen.

Nous avons choisi le Dar Cordoba en sachant que les propriétaires étaient Espagnols, ce qui faciliterait la communication parce que mon français est limité et que je ne parle pas un mot d'arabe ni de berbère.
Extremely positive experience
We chose Dar Cordoba knowing that the owners were Spanish, which would facilitate communication as my French is limited and I know zero of Arabic & Berber.
It was heaven to arrive at this extremely pleasant guest house. The owners were coming home at the same time after a short break in Spain. Juan and Angela Alamo were excellent hosts. The number two man, Moha, was also very helpful during our two day stay in Fes. He arranged an official guide for half a day of exploring Fes and also helped us line up transport to our next stop, Midlet.
The decoration of the rooms and public area is outstanding. The breakfasts were ample and the atmosphere very cheery. Try Dar Cordoba is you go to Fes and you will enjoy it.
We stayed here in December 2006 and fell in love with the Riad and Fes. Located just off the souk, er convient to everything, walking distance.
My wife and I stayed at Dar Cordoba in September '06.. and it was awsome.
Oasis in fes
It was a relaxing place with armony, comfort and nice people.
The owners are spanish,(from Cordoba) and they love Fes and Marroco, so they will help you in all your needs. Don't lose the retauration of the Riad (it was a palace).
