Fes-Boulemane - an imperial city

Fes (Fès in French) is the third largest city in Morocco, after Casablanca and Rabat, with a population of around one million inhabitants. It is one of the four so-called "imperial cities" (the others are Marrakech, Meknes and Rabat) and it’s separated into three parts, Fes el Bali (the old, walled city), Fes-Jdid (home of the Mellah), and the Ville Nouvelle (the newest section).
The Medina of Fes el Bali is believed to be the largest contiguous car-free urban area in the world and is classified as a Unesco World Heritage Site.
