What to do in Moulay Idriss : Tips, places, hotels and restaurants

Moulay IdrissLocated northwest of Morocco, the city of Moulay Idriss has just under 12 000, and is built less than 30 km from Meknes. Shooting famous pilgrimage, it houses the tomb of Moulay Idriss, which gives it its name, and is the founder of Fez and the great-grand-son of Mohammed. A mausoleum dedicated to him, one notices through the green tiles of its roof, and which is accessed by a road lined with white houses. At the end of each summer, many pilgrims come to pay homage to the saint, and the festivities last for several days. We can walk the city and its steep streets, and thus achieve the Mosque of Sidi Abdallah placed on a terrace, where one has a magnificent view of the green roof of the holy city, especially on the cylindrical minaret (the only of its kind in Morocco) covered with green tiles inscribed with verses from the Koran. Tourism is developing in this area for ten years, you will find small guest cottages with few rooms but offering a good alternative to hotels, which are almost non-existent in the area: you will appreciate the simple comforts and 'heartwarming welcome. We arrive at Moulay Idriss coming from Tangier and Chefchaouen. To visit also at the bottom of the city, the famous Roman site of Volubilis.
