LE QUARTIER DES ANDALOUS
Andalusian influence in Morocco began in the 9th century during the massive immigration of people from Spain into Moroccan territories.
Arriving in the north of Morocco and in particular in the city of Fez, the Andalusians gradually imposed their way of life and their societal organisation.
The Andalusian quarter in Fez was made up of around 1,000 Andalusian families who had fled southern Spain.
Today, it is possible to see the culture shock evoked around two essential sites: The Es-Sahrij Madrassa which is the Muslim theological university as well as the Andalusian Mosque, a monument whose embellishment has continued over the centuries.
