Moroccans are serious about preserving their art and this trait is not limited to just their architecture. The Nejjarine Museum of Wood Arts and Crafts displays the various objects produced through the woodcarving techniques in Fes. Not just the artefacts, but the building itself is a piece of art. It was formerly used as a caravanserai for merchants and travellers visiting Fes. There are wooden carvings in the galleries, each one handmade by the local artisans. It is not hard to wonder why the UNESCO declared this building as a World Heritage Site. You will find beautiful carvings in oak, acacia, mahogany and cedar on display. Not just in the museum, you will find artisans at work in the lanes of the medina too. Many of the local works have a place of honour in the museum. Do not miss the Nejjarine fountain at the entrance of the caravanserai. It was constructed in the 17th century and is one of the most beautiful public fountains in Fes.
