Terrasse des Tanneurs, Fez

2 Chouara Lablida Fez el Bali
Tel: 55 740842's insider take:

Fez's tanneries are shrouded by a heavy and unpleasant stench, but they also produce some of the world's finest leather. It's one of Morocco's main exports—along with an illegal cash crop, hashish. Stay on the right side of the law and invest in buttery-soft leather goods, such as bags, vests, slippers, and camel toys for the kids. Visitors can watch the entire leather-making process from a platform that overlooks the tanneries.
