Fes Jdid

Fes El Jdid

Fes Jdid or Fes el-Jdid is one of the three parts of Fez, Morocco. It was founded by the Marinids in 1276 as an extension of Fes el Bali and as a royal citadel and capital.

It is occupied in large part by the historic Royal Palace, which was once the center of government in Morocco and which is still used on occasion by the King of Morocco today.

Since 1981 it has been classified, along with Fes el-Bali, as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
