Fez or Fes (French) is the second largest city of Morocco, with a population of approximately 1 million (2010). It is the capital of the Fès-Boulemane region. The imperial city Fez is the capital of traditional Moroccan culture.
Fas el Bali is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its medina, the larger of the two medinas of Fes, is believed to be the world's largest contiguous car-free urban area.
Fez is considered by many to be a cradle of knowledge, for which its superb medersas (schools in which classical subjects including the Koran are taught) are a symbol. Al-Qarawiyyin, founded in AD 859, is the oldest continuously functioning madrasa in the world.
There is a lot of interesting information about Fez on the internet including this account provided by Wikitravel.
