Bustling streets and souks

“Bab (gate) Boujouloud is the main gate to the ancient city of Fez. This section of Fez, known as the medina, was founded in 786 by the Idrissids, who made it their capitol until 920.

This gate leads to the bustling streets and souks (specialized market) where artisans create and display their handmade crafts.”
