Herb seller portrait, Fez Medina, Morocco
Portrait of a market trader selling fresh mint, cilantro and parsley herbs at the food souk along Talaa Kebira, Fez Medina, Morocco, 2013-10-26.
The entire old, walled medina of Fez el Bali is a UNESCO World Heritage protected site and is considered to be the best preserved example of a medieval medina in the Arab world. It’s labyrinth of streets are notoriously difficult to navigate and most of it’s layout, madrasas, fondouks, palaces, mosques and fountains date back to the 13th and 14th centuries, when Fez was the capital city of Morocco. It also is thought to be the largest pedestrianised space in the world. The heart of the medina is full of amazing Arab and Al-Andalus architecture and design, with a high concentration of stunning mosaic zelij displays.
