Nejjarine Platz (Platz Nejjarine)

Nejjarine Square, Fez, Morocco

The basics

The word nejjarine means “carpenter”, and fine woodworking is on display not only at the Nejjarine Museum but at the nearby Nejjarine Souk (Carpenters’ Souk), which sells ornately carved chairs. Most travelers, however, are here to see the museum, a showcase of delicate carpentry in its own right, and the fountain, a popular stop on many walking tours of the Medina of Fez.

Things to know before you go

  • Nejjarine Square is narrow and tough to capture on film. The square in front of Bab Bou Jeloud is a better photography choice.
  • Back carriers will work better than strollers for parents with young children.
  • The cobbles will challenge many travelers who rely on wheelchairs. It’s best to book a specialist tour or guide (and/or wheelchair pusher) to see Fez medina, as the streets are narrow, crowded, and often steep, and adapted bathrooms are rare.

How to get there

The Nejjarine Fountain (Fontaine Nejjarine)

Don’t expect the tinkling play of sprays of water when you visit this celebrated early 18th-century fountain, a protected national monument since 1916. The Nejjarine Fountain is styled more like a drinking trough, and the basin below its colorful horseshoe-shaped arch was designed for wudu, or purification before Islamic prayers. The charm is in the colorful zellige tile work and filigree plaster, not the waterworks.
