What a beautiful introduction to Moroccan style! Lovely rooms in a refurbished 16th (??) century riad, just inside the gates of the fantastic Fes medina. We had excellent dinner and breakfast here, too. Watch the stairs, and thank heavens for the lovely staff who carried our luggage up and down!!

Eventually someone pointed us in a ...
... a wonderful fountain that graces the center of the courtyard. The walls are covered with intricate mosaics or exquisitely carved stucco, that is typical of the interior decorations of royal buildings in Fez. We enjoy an excellent Moroccan lunch here, with the highlight being the opportunity to take in all of the beauty that surrounds us here. It is definitely like something out of a movie. in beautiful courtyard of an old home.
After lunch, we spent ...
... can easily imagine that the Medina has not actually changed that much over the centuries and we can only hope it stays that way. While we did not do lots here, just the things we wanted, there are numerous other activities offered through accommodation providers and also Fez can be a useful base to visit other nearby towns if they spark your fancy. OK post is long enough time to leave it at that and head off to the next stop: Chefchouen. ...
