Fez Architecture Guide

Fez Architecture Guide

As the original capital and the oldest of Morocco’s imperial cities, Fez is home to some of the country’s most impressive traditional Moroccan architecture, concentrated in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Medina of Fez. Don’t miss these celebrated mosques, madrasas, and palaces during your stay.

Royal Palace

The Royal Palace in Fez, also known as Dar el-Makhzen, has one of the most impressive facades in town. The palace grounds are not open to visitors, but the giant brass doors,zellij tile work, and carved cedar wood frames are impressive in their own right.

Borj Sud and Borj Nord

These two imposing structures, both built by Sultan Ahmed al-Mansour during the end of the 16th century, offer the best panoramic views over the city of Fez and the old medina. The Borj Nord now houses a national armory museum, also worth a look.

Kairaouine University and Mosque

One of the largest mosques in North Africa, the Kairaouine Mosque, is joined by one of the world’s oldest universities. While non-Muslims are not permitted within much of the structure, the recently restored university library is open to the public.

Al-Attarine and Bou Inania Madrasas

Founded in the heart of the Medina of Fez, these two madrassas are best known for their inner courtyards, adorned with spectacular displays of calligraphy, carved plaster and cedar, as well as stunningzellij mosaics. Both are open to non-Muslims.

Bab Boujloud

Situated on the edge of the old city, this ornamental gateway (sometimes spelled Bab Boujeloud) into the heart of the city was built in 1913 on the site of the original 12th-century gate. The towering horseshoe arch is decorated with blue and green mosaic tiles.
