Maybe not quite as stunning as the Bouania Medersa and not in use, the Attarin medersa is still very beautiful and very old (14th century). It is not very large but the architecture and carvings, plasterwork and sense of tranquility make it well worth the minimal entrance fee. Lovely.

The medersa is quite beautiful. It has beautiful carved wood doors and tilework. A relaxing respite from the bustle in the bazaar, it's well worth visitng.

When you walk around the little shops in Fes, visiting this Medersa is definitely worth your time. It is a beautiful old medersa and the amazing little details are great to see. It doesn't cost much (20 dirham per person), but it is also not that big.

This was another beautiful medersa. They are all very special and worth seeing. Although it was rather small, it has been exquisitely restored.

Less famous than the Bouanania medersa but a very beautiful one. The November sunny weather was perfect for pictures. By the way, I m pretty sure that this picture is this entrance of Bouanania Medersa

If you visit Fees you must see Attarin Merdesa if you like to see old places and their magic. Attarin Merdesa is small 14th century courtyard with covered area. Architecture of this building is stunning and that calm beauty when you enter this place from the noisy city. look closely to details.
