The Rcif (or el-Rcif) square lies in the heart of the Fes el-Bali medina, but is reacheable by car. It is well suited as a starting point to explore the medina. Nearby are a number of attractions including the Kairaouine mosque, Seffarine square with the University and library, some Koranic schools (medersas) and several historical buildings. Rcif square is surrounded by a maze of narrow alleys with small shops.
