If you've ever wondered what really goes into the making of that favorite leather jacket, purse, or upholstery, Chouara Tannery will prove quite a revelation. Allegedly the oldest tannery of its kind in the word still in operation, Chouara provides a bird's-eye view of the...More

The tannery in action is amazing to see. The smell isn't that bad - people way overrate that - and the nearby merchants are good. I strongly recommend getting a guide for the leather sales place if you want legit leather at good prices -...More

Skip all the touts and go straight to this shop with “No 10” above the door. Very friendly people and admission is free. They have the best views with two balconies. Take the mint leaves offered to you and carry them in your hand afterwards...More

Even though you have to put with the smell, this is a fascinating place to visit in Fes. Also the shopping is great for leather goods

Built in the 11th century, the Chouara Tannery is the largest and oldest tannery in the city. During the visit, one might experience a strong smell, as they use the dove’s feces to remove the hair of the cows and lambs. For camels and goats...More

Fascinating and unique place. It must be accessed from one of the surrounding leather's shops. The place stinks due to the skins and feces of the animals. In my opinion a must see in Fes, especially from westerners's eyes.
