Today, the city is famous for its blue-painted buildings in its historic medina (old town) and the narrow streets and alleys that hug the hills below two peaks (Chefchaouen means 'horn').

Protected by UNESCO, Fez looks just as it did centuries ago, as the Arab world's most complete medina suffered only limited influence under French rule. The city he consists of three main areas. Fez el Bali (the old Fez where you spend most of your time), Fez el Jedid (“New Fez”), Ville Nouvel (from 1912 he was designed by the French during his 1956 protectorate).
