Escape to Fez
Smile ! You are in Fez
The city was founded on a bank of the Jawaher river by IDRISS I in 789. His son, IDRISS II (808),built a settlement on the opposing river bank. These settlements would soon develop into two walled and largely autonomous sites, often in conflict with one another: Madinat Fas and Al-'Aliya. In 808 Al-'Aliya replaced Walili as the capital of the Idrisids.
