I have seen how the mosaic tiles were arranged to make wall design when I was in Fez. It's being done piece by piece for each color and design. And I guess this is one of the reason I am blown away when I saw Medersa. The tiles are so beautifully put together and gave this place an old Morocco... More

One of the most beautiful medersa in Morocco. I recommend a visit.The most elaborate, extravagant and beautiful of all Merenid monuments. Medersa is the city’s only building still in religious use that non-Muslims are permitted to enter.

From the mosaics to the wood and plaster carvings, everything is breathtakingly beautiful. The place is charged with a beautiful spiritual energy, so find a spot in the shade and take some time to admire what lies before you.

Loving its location close to the Fes's mysterious clock, daily market street and the entrance itself - huge bronze gate with beautiful decoration, few marble steps (usually cute cat familly hang out there) and wooden inner gate to get in - you just feel the beauty and peace of this place. This medresa is more spacious then Attarine one, having... More

Yeah, the title of my review pretty much says it all. When you start looking at intricate lattice work and realize it's hand-carved cedar, or you dive in to the elaborate egg-white layers of carved plaster, you get a sense that you're not only stepping back in to time, but also moving centuries in to the future. This may not... More

If I am not mistaken, this was multi-storey and you could visit the upper level student quarters with windows (which perhaps you could visit but we didn't). Grander than the attarin with more of the zellij, plaster carving and cedar carvings. My husband liked this one more but I found the attarin one more charming because of its smaller size.

Like the other medersa, the carvings are magnificent. Definitely worth a visit. It's fun to wander through here, especially since it's a bit cooler.

Not the best madrassa in Fes but still worth a visit. Great views of the imposing minaret and close to the main gate
