The medina is the world's largest contiguous car-free urban area, whilst University of Al-Karaouine, founded in AD 859, is the oldest continuously functioning university in the world.

                      Fes is famous for it’s traditional artisants in wood, plaster, tile and leather work that still practice their craft in the medina. It is also famous for its pottery, reputed the best in Morocco, traditional Fassi cooking and Islamic Andalusian architecture.
