FES – CHEFCHAOUEN
After breakfast in the Riad, departure for Chaouen nestled in the mountains of the Rif chain in the north of the country. The small town, also called the “blue pearl”, was founded in the fifteenth century by Jewish and Muslim refugees who fled from the Spanish Reconquista. In the 1920s, after the Spaniards defeated the local resistance movement, visitors to the city were surprised to find that Chefchaouen’s Jews still spoke a dialect similar to medieval Castilian. The city, albeit small, still houses places worthy of note: the Outa Hamman square, the great sixteenth-century mosque, the kasbah, the museum of ethnography that tells the story of the ancient town, the Andalus district, where the first refugees settled when they arrived. The typical blue color of walls and streets dates back to the 1930s, and was used by the locals to protect the houses from the evil eye and also from mosquitoes. We will arrive in Chefchaouen after about 3 hours of travel.
Free afternoon dedicated to the visit of the city, characterized by artisans’ shops and by cafes and restaurants that offer beautiful views of the Rif and the city. Overnight in Riad.
CHAFCHAOUEN – VOLUBILIS – MEKNES – FES
After breakfast in the riad, we will return to Fes stopping first, along the way, to visit the ruins of the Roman city of Volubilis, founded around the third century BC, which was part of the Roman province of Mauritania. We will then continue to Meknes, another imperial city, the smallest one, characterized by ramparts about 40 kilometers long, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. The city owes its name to a Berber tribe, the Miknasa, who settled there in the 10th century and the city developed around the existing fortress. The golden age of the city was certainly the one in which it was recognized as the capital, under the reign of Moulay Ismail (1672-1727) following its rise to the Sultanate of Morocco. Subsequently this title was given to Fes up until 1912, and then to Rabat under the French occupancy. Visit of the Bab Mansour Gate, the Royal Stables and the Jewish quarter. In the afternoon departure to reach Fes.
Dinner and overnight in Riad.
Breakfast in the Riad, and then the day will be entirely dedicated to the visit of Fes, the oldest of the imperial cities, founded in 790 by Moulay Idriss II. Fes immediately became the main religious center of Morocco, and it is still considered the spiritual capital of the kingdom for the large number of mosques that it host: about 300 only in the ancient part. Visit of the medieval Medina, the Mederse Bounanaia and Attarine (ancient Islamic religious universities), the Karaouine Mosque from the outside, the mausoleum of Moulay Idriss and the famous Neijarine fountain.
Dinner and overnight in Riad.
