The R'cif Mosque (Arabic: جامع الرصيف; also transliterated as R'sif, Ercif, er-Rsif, or Rasif) is a Friday mosque in Fes el-Bali, the old city (medina) of Fez, Morocco. It has one of the tallest minarets in the city and overlooks Place R'cif in the heart of the medina.
The mosque is located just west of Place R'cif, a large public square created in the 20th century to provide easier access to the interior of the medina (it is one of the only places inside the medina that can be reached by car). Its name means "Mosque of the Paved Road".: 132 It was built on a cliffside along the shore of the Bou Khrareb River (Oued Bou Khrareb) which passes through the center of the city, though the river is now hidden underground between Place R'Cif and the south edge of the city. The mosque is also near the central souqs (markets) of the city, stretching downhill from the Qarawiyyin area.

this place stinks.. smell gross.. me and my friends went there to buy leather products like jacket and bag. The market is pretty big but with very narrow gangway.. and then some guy offered himself to be a guide.. he said he do it for free.. "no money",, but after we went out from the shop (which i never saw something interesting in that leather shop) that guide ask for fee 200 Morocan Dirham. That's quite expensive!

Such a lively and happy place in the evenings, the locals are friendly and everybody is welcoming. Definitely worth a visit, you can visit the small market stalls or simply sit and take in the atmosphere.

It’s a gorgeous place in Fez. There have a night market there, very local and mini! You can feel like you are a local one here.

Plaza in front of town, with a huge gate and lots of hustle and bustle. It smells aweful due to the sewage river running underneath.

One of the few spots to sit down and take a breather in the Medina. Can read a book on the steps or watch kids beat each other up on the trampoline, both good options.
