Fez’s old town, or medina, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site recognized as one of the best preserved historic towns of the Arab-Muslim world. It is also one of the world’s largest urban pedestrian zone. 🌍🌍🌍 The oldest and largest of the traditional tanneries in Fez’s leather souk, Chaouwara Tannery dates back to medieval times. Here, skins are cured using archaic ingredients (including cow urine, quicklime and pigeon feces), and then laid out to dry in the sunshine. The smell of ammonia and raw hide can be overwhelming, but the sight of the multi-colored dyeing vats in the central courtyard is not to be missed. #morocco #fez #medina #tanneries #unesco #worldheritage #leather @symtraveler #travel #traveling #TFLers #vacation #visiting #instatravel #instago #instagood #trip #holiday #photooftheday #fun #travelling #tourism #tourist #instapassport #instatraveling #mytravelgram #travelgram #travelingram #igtravel
