What is remarkable is that little has changed in old Fes. The labyrinth of narrow streets (more than 9000) are still filled with artisans, shops and homes. Donkeys and bicycles are the only form of transport inside the city walls. Tiny doorways hide beautiful courtyards and light-filled apartments.
These photos of Fes were taken in October 2007. You really have to walk around, smell the mint, spices and donkey droppings and hear the call to prayer to fully appreciate Fes. People also don't generally like to be photographed, so if you visit, be sure to ask permission before you snap away.
