Well within the Fez medina, this gem for a small entry fee, is full of wonderful tile, alabaster and wood carving detail. An ancient place for religious teaching in the past it shouldn't be missed.

The sheer amount of work put in by the artisans many centuries back to create this place is mind blowing.. Not an inch of wall is plain, carvings, engraved wood, colorful tiles, sculpted marble are all over.. Though it is a small place in one of the small lanes onside the Medina it is an experience.. I don;t think I... More

Smaller than the other ones I'd seen before, but all architectural elements were equally stunning. We were the only ones... More

As of the end of 2014, the medersa was still closed. There is no indication yet when it will re-open. To find it, go to the main gate of the Andalous Mosque (a tall gateway at the top of some long steps), then take the street or alley on its right; it's not far, and there's a sign on the... More
