The Medina of Tunisia retains the Arab life of ordinary people of the same year and is now listed as a World Heritage Site. There are still more than 3,000 hand workshops and shops.
Walk in Medina, you can always meet other shops that you can't put down, the lighting shop is especially delicate, the famous collection of madness Kidd is here to pick up a light, and until it has been away for a long time Also remember haha.
Tunisia's felt is also famous, can be seen everywhere, the colors are bright and different, but unfortunately the volume is somewhat large and heavy, it is not easy to carry.
Fes is the first Islamic city in North Africa and the founding capital of Morocco's first dynasty, the Idris dynasty. It is densely populated and has many mosques. The residents of the Old City still retain the medieval way of life.
This is the best way to satisfy travellers' imagination of Morocco and Islamic culture. You have to get lost before you come to this FEZ. The map of Fes should be the most complicated one I have ever seen. It is said that only the old city has 9,000 streets. Spread in the Medina is based on medieval architecture, which has been a gathering place for Arabs since the 10th century.
In these settlements, the alleys are interspersed with small alleys, and the alleys are followed by smaller alleys. Or suddenly enter the big alley. There is almost no straight road. Plus chaotic colors and similar houses.
We ventured into it with confidence and after enjoying the lost. Had to bargain with the local guide to lead us. Then pray that he will not leave us because of price dissatisfaction.
Lost in the old streets of the ancient city of Fos, looking for the handmade market
as the earliest Arab city and Islamic center in North Africa, for more than a thousand years, the old town of Fes has always been a holy place in the hearts of North African Muslims . The old town here is called Medina, and the Islamic world means city in the city. The capitals of many Arab countries have old towns, and the Arabic word "Medina" is the unified title for these old towns. The "Medina" of Fes has long been listed on the World Heritage List by UNESCO.
There are good things for the tourists who have done a good job. Fes" "Medina" has more than 9,000 intertwined and well-connected streets, and the winding streets are lined with sloping roofs. And the mysterious canopy, revealing the bright lights from the window. When the tourists walked in these small streets, they looked at the strange things in the window that they didnt know. They always felt that pushing a broken door would make them "one thousand and one nights" dreamlike. In the world.
The road is very narrow. The private handicraft workshops on both sides of the road are all neatly stacked on the doorway. The streets are not like vehicles. Even the tourists on foot will feel the space is not easy to walk through. When encountering the donkeys carrying the goods, the pedestrians must take the initiative to give way, and everyone is afraid of the Turkish blind who does not care. Fortunately, the Arabian nature is warm and hospitable, and often invites pedestrians who are forced to hide into the store to have a cup of hot milk tea.
The craftsmanship of Festus is to admire the city and the craftsmen here. Walking in the narrow alleys of Fez, I can hear the sound of metal tapping. It is the sound of all kinds of silver, copper and iron handicraft shops gathered in the alley. The textiles and porcelain of the handmade market can't be missed!
A few things that the old Moroccan city of Fes had to do
million-year history of the ancient city of Fes can satisfy all your imaginations of Morocco, mysterious and romantic.
A few things that must be done in Morocco
Morocco Fez panoramic terrace accommodation dar seffarine
Morocco's share begins with accommodation in Fes. The first impression of this old house was exquisite. We stayed here for two nights and spent almost half a day in it. After talking with the proprietress for a long time, the boss was an Iraqi. At the age of 22, he fled from Iraq to the Norwegian political refuge, and went to the art school to study architecture in Norway. He was a talented architect. The proprietress is a Norwegian who studies art at the school across the road and is an artist who is free and easy. They met at the bar next to the school. After they got married, no children were busy with work and took time. When I arrived in Morocco, I felt that the boring work was boring, so I spent 500,000 RMB to buy this old house, and spent three years re-engineering the decoration before it appeared in this way. Exquisite tiles, complicated patterns, and chic furniture are all created together. We talked from each other's love experiences to share the beauty of our hometown, from the current state of Moroccan society to war and peace, and finally the boss's words made us feel deeply: "why you in hurry?it's your trip
Fes Medina is also the old town of Fez. Its creation dates back to the end of the 8th century. The Idris dynasty was established here in 808 AD. There are nearly 10,000 lanes in the old town, narrow and twisty, like a maze, so it is said that the only one in the world has no car. In the city, donkeys are the most important means of transportation. The Old Town is the most important tourist destination in Fez, and the Leather Dyeing House, the Blue Gate of Bujulu and the University of Kaluin are all located in the alleys.
Mai Di Road is basically so complicated and disordered, so it is really easy to get lost. Google Maps is really not very useful here. Paper maps are safe in your hands. If you are really lost. It is inevitable that you will come across a passionate "good guy" to lead you. . As for whether or not to bring it, its all in your mind~ There is no doubt that the way to lead the way is definitely to ask for money~
So the Medina of Fes from the moment it became the world cultural heritage, it is doomed to The locals who are idle in the wheat field provide a shortcut to get rich. Even if you dont get rich, it should be no problem to support your family. There are so many tourists every year.
The ancient city of Fes, Morocco is famous enough. The leather dyeing houses may be more famous. The most color attraction in the ancient city of Fes is the leather dyeing house. One of the reasons for the famous reputation of the dyeing house is a "smelly" word. In the winding labyrinth of the alleys, you can find the big dyeing house by following the smell. It is said that Fez is one of the few places in the world that still maintains traditional dyeing methods. The locals send the leather with tweezers and put them in a grid of dyed tanks, retaining the ancient methods of traditional simmering and drying, allowing natural The color of the plant is beautifully presented on the leather. Fes' leather products are renowned in North Africa, thanks to the fact that each process is still strictly in accordance with this traditional process.
In the millennium ancient city on the full moon night, you have a Moroccan wedding, which is also a kind of "reunion" in your trip!
Fez, the first Islamic city in the history of North Africa, I heard a lot of negative rumors about the residents here, but I really feel that there is a big misunderstanding. For example, this wedding of Lu Yu, originally just looking at the excitement, did not expect the host to invite us to enter the ceremony! For the first time, I experienced the Islamic wedding experience. There is no shortage of enthusiasm. Maybe it is usually less free to release. The women at the wedding dance are very devoted. From middle age to young children, everyones body is so Stretching passion! In the deafening hall, for a moment you will wonder if you are still in the ancient Islamic country of North Africa under the cover of this headscarf. In order to respect the local customs, I didn't take pictures anymore after entering the wedding scene, but with the whole big family, I clap my hands and share sweet cakes. The scene feels really wonderful! I have always said that I don't need to add too much grandiose meaning and excuses to travel, so that I can be happy, then the adventure of this Mid-Autumn Night will be recollected after a long time, and it will definitely make me smile from the heart.
