Some researches refer to the city of fes as the religious capital of Morocco, visitors and tourists can actually sense the strong presence of Mosques in the city. Also because Al-Qarawiyyin is one of the famous Islamic universities in the world.
In the past few years, Fes has become one of the popular tourist destinations in Morocco, especially tourists that are interested in imperial cities and historical places. That's what pushed many non-Moroccans to restore traditional riads (old houses) and transform them into second houses or small hostels in the Fez medina.
