MEKNES
The medina


Meknes, Morocco

Meknes, Morocco


The medina of Meknes is just about big enough, and a lively place. The traditional organization of putting similar type of shops and professions in the same quarter very much lives on here.
Meknes has large areas known as qissariya, which are covered markets.
Quality of work here is generally of the better you will find in Morocco, and prices can be among the more affordable. Visitors to Meknes, who have good skills in haggling, should definitely consider picking up their souvenirs here.
