Fez is home to many attractions that highlight its rich traditions, history and culture. One such attraction is the Fondouk el-Nejjarine, home to the Museum of Wooden Arts and Crafts, or Musée du Bois. Originally built as a caravanserai, or roadside inn, in the 18th century, and then exquisitely restored, this museum is now a landmark of Fez. The museum showcases traditional artifacts, carvings and other intricately decorated items. While the items on display are fascinating and offer a look into the rich traditions of the Moroccan people, the building itself shows the skill of woodcarvers and is an attraction on its own. Home to wonderful displays, stunning carved wooden arches and a courtyard, the Fondouk el-Nejjarine and the Museum of Wooden Arts and Crafts is an absolute must-visit when in Fez.

Since Morocco is a predominately Muslim country, there will be plenty of prayer facilities throughout all of its cities. Finding prayer facilities in Fez will therefore not be a problem at all. The Kairaouine Mosque, located in Fez, is the second largest mosque in Morocco and is the city’s most popular mosque.
There is a café on the rooftop of the museum. Muslim visitors will not only be able to find Halal food here, they will also be met with incredible views over the medina. Finding Halal restaurants in the city of Fez will also not be a problem at all, since Morocco is a predominantly Muslim country.
