Bou Inania Madrasa, after paying a tiny entrance fee: we were the only visitors at that moment making it an extremely peaceful and interesting visit. Though small, the Islamic school resembled those we had seen in Fez and in fact was built during the 14th...More

Great to be able to look into the student bunk rooms, to see the views from the rooftop, and to be able to get more information about the medersa from the cashier.

Medersa is a school of Islamic studies. It is interesting to visit this medersa, that can be walked quietly. It has very beautiful decorations. It is open to visitors for non-Muslims and admission costs 10 dirhams (1 euro)

This building housed an ancient Islamic School. The open courtyard has amazing tiles and carvings on the walls. The little wood windows on the second story are the cells occupied by the students. Be sure and go to the terrace for the view.

Unlike the crowded Medersas of Fes, this one is tranquil and not yet much restored. It is deep in the Medina with not much of an obvious entrance. Worth finding. Go up to the roof and admire the minaret and the view. And don't miss...More
