Beautiful place! So much to admire and contemplate from the wooden engraved doors, to the exquisite zellij and Arabic calligraphy,... There are several rooms and upper floors. The mosque is divided into 2 sections for men and women. There's a nice water fountain in the middle with a long side basin (which was empty then) So much detail everywhere, everything... More

This Medersa is in the old part of Fes, close to Bab Boujloud, easy to find. Once inside the courtyard there are beautiful intricate art works everywhere, centuries old. I would highly recommend this place to get a real taste of Fes.

We stopped at the Bou Inania Medersa on our guided tour of the Medina of Fes and we were the only ones inside at the beginning of the afternoon . This islamic school has one of the most beautiful art work that we have had the chance of admiring in the world To be included in a walking tour !

Building is surprisingly beautiful with detailed information and design. Reflects on typical moroccan traditional way of construction. Worth a visit.

What you see through the doors is breathtaking. Unfortunately non Muslim people can't enter but the photographs from the doorways are still stunning.

This is a must do while visiting Fez Medina. This is a small road with a very deep history. We were impessed by architecture.

We had a nice tour of the medina and made a stop to visit this historic riad. It'seems the best in my opinion.

This Medresa is simply a pure exponent of Fes imperial era, internal decoration is flawless and extremely detailled. You can spend quite a while admiring the central patio, its gates and walls, its definitely a must see in Fes.
