People disembark from a train at Gare Fez, the train station in Fez, Morocco.



I had been in Meknès for four days, and now I was moving on to another imperial city, Fez. I traveled there on the excellent Moroccan rail system.

Like Meknès, Fez is 5° west of London but it looks like what I imagine old Central Asian cities would look like. I stayed in the medina, the walled old city.

The main streets of a medieval city like Fez lead from the primary city gates to the main mosque, at the center of the commercial district. There are two such primary streets in Fez, I explored both of them.

Two madrasas or religious schools are spiritual and architectural highlights of Fez, and they are open to non-Muslim visitors.
