Description

Day1: Tangier – Meknes-Mly Idriss Zerhoun

Tangier to fez 3 days desert tour We leave Tangier early in the morning to start our journey in discovering the hidden mystics that surround the second Oldest empire in the World. We will go south following a panoramic mountain road. The sight of the northern mountains and the tidy olives are a sensation that the whole Mediterranean shares. The green landscape serves as a cooling system to Morocco. It is an escape from the overwhelmingly busy streets of all of Tangier, Casablanca, Rabat, and Fez. Upon our arrival to Meknes, we will have some time to promenade in its beautiful cafes in the main square. Meknes is the twin city of Fez. The current dynasty built it as their very first capital in their early days. It was the first capital of unified Morocco after centuries of chaos. The walls surrounding it were designed to sustain cannons attacks unlike other medinas. In its times, Meknes was the strongest fortification in all of North Africa. The famous gate Bab Mansour was a sign of defiance to European powers as a Portuguese captive designed it. This captive served as the architect of the Sultan Moulay Ismail also designing the Sahrij Souani Bassin and the underground prison. These last monuments were in full action in times of war. Then we will visit the Mulay Ismail Mausoleum the founder of the city.
Our journey continues to Mly Idriss Zerhoun, you will have the opportunity to visit Moulay Idriss Citadel which dates back to the 8th century. It goes without saying; it was Moulay Idriss who built it. The value of this citadel lies in the fact that it was the first Islamic capital when the Arab Muslims came first to Morocco. Then, overnight will be in our Riad in Mly Idriss Zerhoun.

Tangier to fez 3 days desert tour After having a traditional breakfast, we will go on discovering the mythical side of this ancient city. Fez’ fame stands as Morocco spiritual, cultural and intellectual center. It has the oldest University in the world known as the Qaraouine University. This makes it a strong hold of both conservative and Modern communities. It is the second biggest city in Morocco. As we strand along its wide streets, the new part of the old medina (14th century) will be our first stop. The Mullah (Jewish Quarter) is the main neighborhood in this part of the medina. Then we will give Fez El-Bali or the old town (8th century) inside the walls a chance to take us into a time travel into the depth of time and space. We will roam in its maze like small streets. We will see potters, smiths; artisans and donkeys laden with goods from diverse backgrounds and giving short gazes at the visitors and wandering its complicated streets. Also it is famous for their souk and tanneries; we will be able to partake the artisan process inherited from ancestors since the medieval ages to get that colorful leather.
