One does not come to Fes and not visit Batha. The Batha museum is a one-stop destination to understand the artistic culture of Morocco. The museum is housed in a 19th century summer palace – which itself is an architectural wonder. The most unique thing in this museum is the blue pottery collection. This shade of blue is said to have been developed by craftsmen in Fes in the 10th century. Another ancient range of artefacts in the museum is the ceramic collection from the 14th century. Besides these, you are likely to find the furniture embellished with the traditional art forms. Do pay a visit to the collection of coins from various centuries in history. Roaming about in the museum, you will come to the fabulous carpet exhibition here. In summer, you will find open-air concerts taking place in Der Batha gardens.
