Street in Fes-al-Jdid
The Medina of Fes-al-JdidFes-al-Jdid nearly abuts Fes-al-Bali. It is old, but less so that Fes-al-Bali. It is a smaller area and seems to lack the coherence of its older cousin. It is, nonetheless, interesting in its own right.
While the practice of "corbeling" (the extension of upper stories outward from the ground floor) is common in Fes-al-Bali, it is almost the norm in Fes-al-Jdid. The practice provides shady areas even at noon, and further reduces the glare of the sun in the narrow streets.
