A good traveler looking into the glorious city of Fez will never regret it. Fez is the brightest representative of the Muslim east, with vocal street vendors and a delicate flavor of spices. Many cultures have intertwined in Fez, to which the city owes its multifaceted oriental flavor.
Fez is called an imperial city because it is one of the four oldest settlements of Morocco, each founded by a member of a royal family who for some reason escaped from their native lands and found a new home on the eastern shore of the Atlantic.
Where is Fez
The city of Fez is located in the semi-desert zone of Morocco, east of its capital, Rabat. Fes can be reached by train, which runs regularly from Casablanca and Rabat, the cities with major airports. But Fes has its own airport which receives international flights and is a 15 km drive from the city. Cabs or a shuttle bus will bring you to the city itself.
Fez was founded in 789 AD on the eastern bank of the river by a runaway Arab prince, a descendant of the Prophet Mohammed, Idris Ibn Abdallah. By that time, there were already numerous Berber tribes living on the coast of the Fez River who, being captivated by the wisdom of Idris ibn Abdullah and his armed followers, recognized Idris as an Imam. It is this event that the Moroccans consider the emergence of their national statehood. Twenty years after the founding near the eastern shore of Fez, the son of Idris ibn Abdullahh, Idris II founded a city of the same name on the western shore. The new Fez became the capital of the westernmost Arab state of the Idrissids.
By the mid-11th century, a Berber nation-state had already emerged on the territory of modern Morocco, with a ruling dynasty of Almoravids who came from the Western Sahara and Senegal, whose rulers united Fez into one city. But the religious teachings of the Almoravids were too revolutionary, and so did not last long, and were overthrown by the zealous Muslim Almohads. Under the Almohads, Fez became the largest Islamic city and cultural and scientific center in Africa.
In the 13th century, the Marinid dynasty came to power in Fez, which attached great importance to the development of the economy and trade, not the least of which was the Jewish community. Jews made up a large part of the merchants of Fez. Under the Marinids, the now famous Oriental bazaar arose.
After the Reconquista, the Spaniards took over the city and renovated it with medieval European architecture
Casablanca is a city in Morocco, the administrative center of the Casablanca Prefecture, and the main transport and economic center of the country. It is the second largest city in Africa after Cairo. Casablanca is on the Atlantic coast of Morocco. The port of Casablanca is the largest in Morocco and the fourth largest in Africa. The city originated in the 7th century as the Berber settlement of Anfa. Its inhabitants traded with Mediterranean merchants and later the local port became a haven for pirates. In the 15th century, the Portuguese decided to put an end to the plundering and after storming the village they burned it down. They founded a fort, which they called Casa Blanca (White House, Arabic: Dar el Beida).
In contrast to the official capital of Rabat, the religious capital of Fez and the two unofficial (summer residences of the King), Marrakech and Tangier, Casablanca is called the business capital of Morocco. Casablanca (a population of 2.9 million) has dozens of banks, thousands of firms, companies, agencies, intermediaries, offices and subsidiaries, about 100 hotels. In the business part of the city rises a block of Notre Dame de Lourdes Cathedral, a monumental concrete structure with enormous colored stained glass windows. Nearby is a Muslim mosque whose architectural ensemble is completed by a rectangular obelisk of a pointed minaret. The most interesting for tourists is the old part of the city – the Medina. It retains the color of an oriental city – narrow (three meters; no more) and crooked streets, donkeys pulled by carts. On the right and on the left are dozens of shops with merchandise on display.
The city became world famous during World War II. In January 1943, the Casablanca Conference with U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill was held here. The Casablanca movie, which made the names of Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman famous, was set in this city. Hassan II’s oceanfront machete is the city’s main attraction. All Moroccans took part in the fundraising for its construction. This is the second biggest mosque in the world, a unique height of its minaret – 210 m, the floor is paved with golden marble and green onyx, the columns are made of pink marble. The construction of this structure cost 800 million.
