Only from the outside

Not much to see as you cannot get inside. Appreciating the place from outside is all you can do. You can drive by the place and this is it.

Great but there's no need to see it more than once. It's best to go in summer as morning is cold if you want to go there to pray. Always have a guide as you will get lost.

This is interesting to see, especially if you are Spanish as this is the mosque in the Andalucian quarter of the medina. You can't enter but nice enough all the same. Nice to pass by.

Not a Muslim? Then your not getting in, like every Mosque in Fes! So it's a waste of time to even seek it out. Not much to see from the outside either. I just can't understand how people can rate these places so highly and it's definately NOT an attraction. Don't bother!

If you come up the wide and steep steps from the medina it's a pretty front to the mosque, and can provide some interesting photographs, but that's your lot, you can't enter if you are none Muslim and the doors are nearly always closed so you can't see the interior. There are no cafes in the area, though, unusually there... More

Like some of the other Fes attractions this site is a not really an "attraction" in the sense that it is site for tourists so if you are not in the area then dont put this on your must see but if you are in the area stop for a quick peek.

This mosque was the symbolic counterpart to the Qarawiyyine in the Andalous quarter; in Fez's very early history, the Qarawiyyine and Andalous quarters were separate cities on opposite sides of the river, with their own walls. They were later joined into one city and the Qarawiyyine mosque eventually overshadowed the Andalous mosque as the spiritual and symbolic heart of the... More

I was a bit disappointed by this mosque. Unlike some others of the great mosques I've encountered, this one has only one portal - or so it seemed to me at least. This one is nice though, and nicely decorated. From afar when you can see the minaret it's a nice view and the muezzin is also singing in a... More

It was a nice walk in the Andalusian quarter. Unfortunately the Sahrij medersa was closed and the mosque itself not open to non-muslims, but the staircase is very impressive as is the entrance portal. Much less touristic and false-guides- free.
