What a peaceful and beautiful place! The medersa is just stunning - its design and tiles are beautiful and it is clear why this place was meant for meditation and education.

The entree is really cheap, only 20DH per person. So considering that non muslims are not allowed to enter any other religious buildings, except for this, it is worth it to go see at least this one. However, non-muslims are not allowed to go to...More

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.
