FEZ
The river of Fez

The river of Fez is the life source of this city. If the stories told of the city's foundation are true, Moulay Idriss I had his men sent out to search for the best location of a new central city.

Fez, Morocco

Where Fez was to founded, the rivers were full and life appeared to have a good chance. Today, the river runs through the city with houses on both sides, and if you are not careful you could easily overlook the river. It is however visible from the bridge that crosses it all through Fez.
