Place de la Resistance (Resistance Square), Fes

Place de la Résistance is a junction between the New Town and the old Medina in Fes, offering tourists a charming destination in its own right, consisting of a large roundabout with a grand fountain in its center. This fountain is designed to synchronize its water movements with musical rhythms, orchestrating graceful rises and falls, and accompanied by lighting which is activated during the night, adding a great deal of romantic character to the whole scene. Unsurprisingly, this feature has made the fountain a favorite spot among locals, particularly for wedding parties, who frequent the area for memorable photo opportunities.

About 150 meters towards the Medina, just after the McDonald's, is Borj Fez—a sprawling shopping center spanning three levels. Inside, visitors will find 60 stores, a Carrefour hypermarket, a food court, a children's playground, and more.
