FEZ
The modern town

Fez, Morocco

Dave Bowles makes quite a point in his mid-1950's The Spider's House that when the French built the modern town they chose an impossible location. That it was a place without protection against the summer sun, nor the winter winds.
Still, the modern town has survived, and is a popular place both with locals as with foreigners. It has plenty of charm, good shopping, good restaurants and plenty of hotels of all standards.
