The Medina of Fez is a modern-day labyrinth–delve deep enough and one can probably still find a Minotaur. Filled with compact, windy streets, indescribable scents, and cries of “Balak! Balak!” when an unyielding donkey is approaching, it is reminiscent of the Amazon in that it is nearly impossible to be put in to words–it really needs to experienced. From tanneries to rug shops, you can find it here, though be aware that religious sites are for Muslims only.
