The Essential
Located thirty kilometres south of Fes at the gateway to the Middle Atlas, Sefrou spreads over both sides of the Aggaï River, which runs through the medina from east to west. The latter is appealing for its animated atmosphere and its mellah, which once counted a large Jewish population. The best time to visit Sefrou is in June during the Cherry Festival. It is also a good time for hiking, ideal in the Kandar massif and the high Sebou Valley.
