It has always been said that once you set foot in Fes” smile, you are in Fes”. The city of Fez has been founded by Idriss II, the successor of Idriss I who established the center of reign near the Roman Empire of Volubilis around the 7th century, but could not find enough space as his village Moulay Idriss Zerhoun is a small mountain village, and with the lack of water resources, Idriss II sought the idea of moving to the Sais fertile land for a much larger space and for the fact of not lacking water.
