Place Seffarine (Seffarine Square; also spelled Saffarin) is a small square in the medina (old city) of Fes, Morocco. It is located on the south side of the Qarawiyyin Mosque, close to the Bou Khrareb River which runs through the heart of the medina. The square dates back to the Middle Ages but has also undergone renovations in modern times. It is adjoined by the Qarawiyyin's library to the northwest, by the Saffarin Madrasa to the east, and by the Saffarin Hammam (bathhouse) to the southwest. It is named after the coppersmiths (seffarin or saffarin; Arabic: الصفارين‎) who have had their workshops here for centuries.

  • This photogenic triangular square is located near the Kairaouine Mosque in Fes El Bali. You can hear this square before seeing it as it is filled with dozens of metalworkers or dinandiers pounding...

  • One of the most important places you must visit in Fès . It’s in the old town. You will find many traditional Moroccan handmade stuff. The prices are good . But be careful .
  • Nice, welcome open space in the Medina. We stopped at a Cafe here for orange juice a couple times and watched the action from their rooftop terrace. It's a nice place to relax
