The tanneries

Planning to visit the tanneries? See our information below!


If you look up Fes on google, you can’t have missed it. You must have seen pictures of the world famous tanneries. If you visit the Tanneries, you will soon understand that it is one of the most visited sights in Fes for a reason!

While walking through the streets of Medina in Fes you are constantly approached by men who want to take you to the tanneries. Better ignore the men and follow the signs. You can generally take a look for free and sellers are happy to tell you more about the production process for a small tip. Once at the top you get a beautiful view over the colored baths in which the leather skins are softened or given a new tan. An impressive process that can be quite smelly. It is a great pleasure for the eye, not the nose.

The Habous Quarter is perhaps the most traditional district of Casablanca, resembling a small souk, such as you often encounter in Morocco.

Most of the city is fairly modern, but the Habous district has best preserved its authentic character. There are numerous traditional shops where you can buy shoes, teapots and colorful mosaic tiles. It is much quieter in the Habous Quarter than around Mohammed V Square or near the Grand Mosque. You can not only buy nice souvenirs, but also admire the royal palace. From the outside, because you can’t go inside.

The Hassan II Mosque is without a doubt the main tourist attraction of Casablanca, but also one of the seven largest mosques in the world.

The construction of the mosque started in 1986 by order of the then King Hassan II and was fully completed in 1993. The Mosque offers space for no less than 25.000 people in the beautiful prayer hall. But there is more to the mosque than just the prayer hall. You can also find a Quran school, a bath room, a library and a beautiful museum.

The Hassan Tower is a special appearance. The Hassan Tower is a 44-meter-tall minaret that can be seen from much of the city.

The Hassan Tower is the legacy of one of the most prestigious construction projects in Morocco and should become part of the largest mosque in the world. But the special thing about the tower is that it was never really completed. Financial malaise was the reason that construction was halted in the year 1199 and the robust tower, together with about 200 columns, is the only thing that still reminds us of the project.
