Get an excellent view over World Heritage-listed Fes from Borj Nord, the northern tower of the ancient fort. An onsite museum showcases a variety of exhibits connected to the country's military history--swords, cannons, guns, and other weapons. Climb to the stone tower's battlements, from which guards would look out for and attack enemies; today, the vista offers a panorama of the charming medina below.

I was pleasantly surprised by this arm’s museum - it was actually one of the best collections of any type that I experienced in Morocco. The antique weapons are glorious - feels like an oxymoron writing this - but they are beautiful inlaid with ivory and jewels - masterpieces!

This castle is worth of visit, because the panoramic view to the old Medina and surrounding, I suggest the visitors had better start the tour early in the morning that's gonna make a gorgeous day! In the exhibition we saw a serial weapons display through the major war-period of times in Morocco. What a complicated feeling to learn that people has invested so much efforts and dedicated their live to destroy one another.
