Create an itinerary including Chouara Tannery
Observe the completely manual process of leather dying that hasn't changed since the Middle Ages at Chouara Tannery, the largest and oldest of Fes' three tanneries. The only downside to your visit may be the stench of pigeon poop and cow urine, part of a mixture used for softening the hides. Plan my Fes trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
