Beautiful architecture, used to be a school for boys I think. Unfortunately on the day we visited there was a fashion shoot and select parts had been closed off. Disappointed.

As you can visit any mosque in Marrakech if you're not a muslim, this is a good way to look at very beautiful architecture. Its a gem in the city. Beautiful and quiet!

Well worth the 60dh entry fee, especially since you get into the museum next door for the same price. A lovely building the type of which you simply don't get in Europe. The mosaic patterns and the courtyard with the water feature are beautiful. Provides the backdrop to some great photos :-)

Truly recommended stop in Marrakesh. Amazing building, we took hundreds of photos. Difficult to put into words what you would see, so better see it for yourself.

Though it took us a couple tries to find it, the Madrasa is beautiful with a running fountain and beautiful Islamic tiles and design. It's not very well preserved unfortunately. But it is a nice break from traversing e medina.
