Our Favorite! – Dar Bensouda

Riad Fes Medina - Dar Bensouda 02

The riad Dar Bensouda was built and decorated in the ‘pure’ and traditional Moroccan way, with a mixture of blue and earthy colours creating a very relaxing and pleasant atmosphere. By the way, many riads use the term dar to name their establishments and it simply means “home” in Arabic.
