Photograph by Flandrin MODERN AIRPLANES DRONE ABOVE THE TWIN CITIES OF ANCIENT FEZ The native city consists of Djedid, the upper town, and El Bali, the lower, older section. Fez Djedid-the name means Fez the New, although itwas built more than six centuries ago-includes the Sultan's palace and the Jewish quarter. In Fez the Old are the famous mosques and theological colleges, the crowded reed-roofed souks (see text, pages 664, 669, and illustrations, pages 668 and 677). Still a third section is La Ville Nouvelle, a transplanted bit of modern France.
