A day trip well worth it. A smaller bustling ancoent city, full of ancient people with ancient dialects. A treat to the senses. The market is like any other city in Morroco but smaller. It is a city divided between the old and new section....More

The Medina of Meknes is well worth a visit if you have a few days in the Fes area. We went on a Friday, so it was quiet, but this was a nice way to see a smaller Medina, and enough shops were open to...More

Lovely to explore the Medina in Meknes. A labyrinth of small streets. Fez and Marrakesh do offer more to see in their medina's but this is still well worth visiting. Very historic.

A Medina is the walled city, not the market as some think. The market here is fairly small with an area that has permanent shops and another around the square with stalls. Open till 10pm. The rest of the Medina is typical of Morocco with...More

The medina of Meknes is as old as the hills. A walled and fortified town sitting atop a beautiful square. The medina even sells tortoise. Seen a box of them at one point. They seem to have 1 of everything. Seriously though a warren of...More

This was just a place that supplies the locals of their food and clothing. Nothing exciting to be honest. Worth just having a stroll around but this is nothing in comparison to the other medinas in Fez and Marrakesh. But on a positive note, the...More

Once the capital from 1672 to 1727. Now the agricultural capital of Morocco. A guided walk through the old city learning a bout Meknes ancient history from when it was the Capital of Morocco. Meknes has some stunning architecture and gates to the city

Compared to other Medina's, the Medina of Meknes seemed lacking. It had its fair amount of charm but there was really nothing special in terms of artisans or history of note that I came across.

Although this medina is small and doesn't offer much in the way of shopping for tourists, it's very chilled and relaxed and you don't seemed to get hassled as much when in larger medinas. Lovely local restaurants in the medina with the local markets bustling...More

Yes I only spent half a day there and then went to Volubilis which is also worth doing. If you have a car it only needs an hour or so to visit.
