For anyone that loves photography and wants to do it in Fez. Below are some of the best places you should visit.
The blue gate(Bab Boujloud) :
People consider it the main way to the old Medina. For this reason, it’s very crowded there and It’s like a battle to photograph. So, to get the best pictures you need to shoot from outside of the gate. You will get the opportunity to capture all the beautiful Arabian colors of it with locals in the picture.
The tanneries :
Fes is very famous for its leather tanneries. The most famous one they call it “Chouara“. In total there are about three. At this place, they use very traditional methods. The reason why you should photograph there is the colors of the lather.
Mount Zalagh view :
This is a very beautiful panoramic view outside of the city. This is where you will have a chance to hike to the top of the mount. In addition, we recommend going there at the sunrise/sunset time. The city’s colorful houses reflect the color of the sun. However, this gives very beautiful shots of Fez‘s natural beauty.
