The best part of the town to enjoy the sunset. You can also observe all the parts of the medina from there. Lovely place!

The Merenidi tombe is located high on the hill above Fes el-Bali Medina. Easy taxi ride from the Medina takes just 5 minutes and costs around 6 Durham. Well worth the view as you can see the vastness of this very large Medina and the view over the mountains.

The tomb itself is not the best preserved and left to the elements. But the view from above down on Fes, especially at sunset - very beautiful. This tomb was visible from our riad terrace. The sheepskins that dot the hill change colour from red to brown and yellow as they dry during the day.

This is supposed to be some kind of historical spot, however there is not much to see, except for the view of Fes, which is great - as unlike in the small streets of medina you can finally see the city from a better perspective and as a whole, not only the details of life. Don't expect a special place... More

We had a good map from our hotel and were able to find the tomb without any trouble . Followed blue route and walked out of the BAB Guissa gate onto the road and you would see the ruins on top of the hill across the road.There are steps and trail to walk up to the Tomb. Worth walking up... More

Splendid view on the Medina. Especially around sunset. Prayer time gives an extra aural dimension to the stunning atmosphere.

The tombe itself is worth looking at but the real reason to go here is for the great view of Fes. It is a perfect location and magnificent at sunset.

The tombs were not all that interesting, but the view of Fez provided some context for the maze we'd just exited. A cemetery is on the other side of the hill and we watched a funeral procession take place, with an explanation from our guide about local funeral practices. That was the best part of our visit.

After wandering through the narrow streets of the medina, a hike to the Tombe dei Merenidi is excellent. My guide book suggested that it wasn't real safe to walk to the tombs so I took a petite taxi and walked back. If you walk to the Bab Mahrouk and turn right....the bus station will be on your left. Follow the... More
