The fountain is actually a water tap within a beautiful tiled arch - not what I was expecting. Neverthless, the area is superb, just hang around and waytch what is going on, or find a cafe with a terrace and watch the world below. Highly recommend the wood museum which is next door - stunning building and really interesting exhibits.

Don't look for the real fountain. It took us time to understand that it is a small one on the wall, with no water in winter time.

This is not a beautiful fountain, it is at best just nice. It needs work. The location is the center of the Medina and the tile work is worth a glance and maybe a photo and that's it.

This is a museum where merchants sold their goods in the middle of a courtyard. Everything from prayer beads to berber locks, musical instruments, eating platters, jewelry boxes, chests, chopping boards and a reflection of their talents displayed with the intricate carved doors, courtyards and arches. You can see, before your eyes, showcase of the the artists, carvers and carpenters... More

Our guide told us that this fountain was the best example of a Moroccan fountain in all of the medina. The crowning jewel of the Nejjarine plaza. It is right next to the Musee du Bois.

There's no shortage of beautifully tiled things in Fez. This is one among them. It's beautiful and worth a stop if you're around.
