Once the luxurious resting place of royals, Tombe dei Merenidi offer panoramic views over an ancient medina and other historical and religious landmarks, which make up for the crumbling state of the ruins. Dating back to the 14th-century Marinid dynasty, the tombs spent years at the mercy of the local weather and looters. Despite obvious damage, you can still see the remains of the walls with some original inscriptions and detailed carvings. The two graveyards laid out on the hillsides below the tombs serve as pastures for local shepherds. Make Tombe dei Merenidi a centerpiece of your Fes vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Fes travel route planner.

Tombe dei Merenidi reviews
This is a great spot to watch the sun setting over the medina, it is quite spectacular and a lovely end to the day before going back to our hotel for a great meal more »
Great to get away from all the crowds for an hour or so. The view was spectacular. There is a cemetery very close to the tombs that is very peaceful. more »
