breakfast at our #riad yacout situated in #fes’s #medina near bab bou jeloud or the #bluegate

the medina of fes was founded by #moulay #idriss II in the 9th century, not long after #islam came to #morocco

fes reached its #zenith in the 13th and 14th centuries 

we visited the entrance to the #royal #palace which was built in the 13th century during the reign of the #merinides #dynasty 
the main entrance was #restored in the 1970s 
it has 7 #brass #doors 
80 feet high they #symbolize the 7 days of the #week or perhaps the #gates to the 7 #heavens
