Beautiful Madrasa

The medersa has lovely tile, stone, and woodwork. It was a bit crowded when we went. It is similar to the Bou Inania Medersa, though still work a visit.

One of the many sites to see in this densely rich area of sites, it is worth the time to take 30 minutes to wander and see the detailed works.

We got there early and were able to really appreciate the fine levels of detail this medersa has to offer. I would rate it as one if the best in Morocco next to the Ben Youssef in Marrakech.
