The carving, the mosaics, the ornate and exquisite detail that went into every part of this are just downright unbelievable. Highly recommend you stop by here if you are in the old medina (if you can find it!)

Lovely medersa, ornately carved plaster and cedar wood. Very similar to medersa bou inania but smaller and cosier

I stared for a very long time at the exquisite carvings, whether wood, stone or plaster. The quality rivals southern Spain or Damascus, as it once was but is no longer. Do not miss this.

Really amazing and worth seeing/photographing. All of the mosaics and carvings you could ever want to see in Morocco.

Important building in Fez history; a nice pitstop for a few minutes to see outstanding architecture within the medina. You will need less than 30 minutes on location.

Make sure you see this. Peaceful and very close to other sites. Great photo opportunities and an escape from the busy medina

The entrance is the only part of the building that non Muslims are allowed to see. It's a beautiful building from the outside. It's a shame we could not get inside.

We very much enjoyed our visit to this madrasa with its classic tile, carved plaster walls, and cedar ceiling. It provided a nice break from the shops in the medina.

Not used as a medersa for a long time, this building features beautiful tile work, stone work, and carving. The small rooms upstairs, former living space, were not of an particular interest to me, so I would skip them if you are short on time. It is worth a quick trip up to get a different view of the beautiful... More
