Salé Medina, Morocco

The Medina area in Salé is a quaint and picturesque place to spend a few hours in the afternoon. As well as the Abul Hassan Medersa, the district is also home to Salés’ Grand Mosque; the Mausoleum of Sidi Ben Ashir, with its photogenic whitewashed tomb; and the Fondouk al-Askour.

There are also some wonderfully atmospheric souks, where you can join in with the locals and try out your haggling skills. The shopping souks here are very much a local affair and haven’t been overly trussed-up for the tourists, which makes them an interesting counterpoint to the souk streets of Marrakesh and Fes.
