Quite often referred to as the cultural capital of Morocco, Fes is known for its walled medina, its medieval architecture, colorful souks and old-world vibe. About 90,000 people still live in the Fez Medina that appears to be in constant motion of the mayhem variety soaked in colors, aromas and rooftop minarets. You can easily get lost in blind alleys, gawk at artisans that appear like figures from yesteryear or even bump into the odd donkey and cart. The medina is where you will find religious schools such as Al Attarine or the 14th Century Bou Inania with their elaborately decorated facades. The city where philosophers, scholars, lawyers, astronomers and mathematicians roamed, Fes is littered with people and mosques and is now home to coworking spaces for its inventive locals or globe-trotting nomads who wish to get some work done.
Fes is the 2nd largest city in Morocco, after Casablanca, sitting northeast of the Atlas Mountains and penetrated by the Fez River. It's the crossroads of the big cities being 206km from Tangier, 246km from Casablanca, 169km from Rabat and 387km from Marrakesh. The city is mainly 2 old quarters with a modern urban area that was constructed during the French colonial era. The medina of Fez is a world heritage listed site and believed to be one of the world's largest urban pedestrian zones. Its University of Al Quaraouiyine was founded in 859 and is the oldest continuously functioning university in the world.
Morocco is becoming a fast-growing tech landscape, despite still being in its embryo stage. Startup investment is making an appearance and many hubs are popping up throughout in cities such as Rabat, Casablanca and sleepy seaside towns where the sun worshippers/surfers of the globe trotting type hang out, such as Taghazout. Morocco has adopted the auto-entrepreneur framework of France that is a lever to integrate the informal economy into a legal framework whereby more than 40,000 "auto entrepreneurs" benefit from simplified taxation and access to micro-loans plus social security. Coworking spaces in Fes are creating spaces for the locals to find innovative solutions to the many challenges that face the people of Morocco.
