Although small it is filled with visual delights. The architecture is beautiful and the use of tiles, ceder wood and stucco walls combine to make it a place you want to see.

An old madrasa (Islamic religious school), now a museum. Beautiful architecture and artistic elements, including green and white tiles and lacy patterns in wood and plaster. Well worth a stop.

This medersa is beautiful on the inside. The lovely carved cedar wood and stucco walls and the colorful Moroccan tiles all compliment each other to make a welcoming courtyard. It is quiet inside almost hard to believe that the medina is on the other side of the door. Well worth the small entrance fee.

An old Madersa (seminary) which now serves a museum. The architecture is amazing. The intricate mosaics all around the compound is worth the effort trying to find it in the maze of streets

For us ..this was part of our solo expedition through Medina without guide ..we would have almost missed this pretty place coz it's well hidden amidat the various shops at the medina..it's almost got a cryptic entry that belies it's actual existence .. But once u enter it at a fee;it's a nice place which reveal great Arabic architecture ..filigree... More

This visit was very memorable. This medersa's architecture is the expression of some of the best techniques that you can find in Fez.
