The creator of the first Arab dynasty and most sacred saint, Moulay Idriss, is buried in the center of this very holy town. Non-muslims are not permitted to visit many of the shrines, however a wander through the hilly streets is very interesting. Moulay Idriss’ shrine is the destination of constant pilgrimages. There is also a September moussem. You can get a view of the shrine from the Terrasse Sidi Abdallah El Hajjam above the Khiber, find a young guide to lead the way.
It’s better to move on to
Meknes because it has only be recently that they even allowed Christians to enter the town. Accommodation is sparse but possible.
