The infamous Tannery is the location where all leather is made in Morocco. There are Tanneries in many cities but the Fes Tannery is famous and you can get a great look at it from the many shops and restaurants the look over it. The only bad thing about this place is the smell, you can smell leather burning throughout the whole town. Its smells like hell but the Tannery is definitely something you need to see once you make it to Fes. I have attached a short video that we created while we were there.

Locals use it a lot and it is leaner than the beef and less fatty. Even the hump is used. The butchers have to be very faithful Muslims that pray 5 times a day and when they sacrifice the animal they turn [...]
