There are very few exhibits here, but the ones available are beautiful. The price of 50Dh would be expensive alone but for 60Dh you can get into the Madrasa also, and this is worthwhile.

Interesting and quite beautiful, a peaceful place but definitely not a highlight of Marrakesh. You can similar similar things in many other places in Marrakesh and probably better.

Rather keep walking past the entrance and go to the nearby medersa a 100m away. This place is borning,not much to see and expensive relative to other much more beautiful places. Also if you can't read French like me then an absolute wast of your time. Worst place we visited in Marrakech

This city has been the focal place for trading for many centuries. Camel trains still cross the Sahara to trade for leather which has been famous world wide for over 1000 years. As you walk into the massive square you experience an assault to all of your senses. The sounds of native music played by nomadic pipers and drummers .... More

Toilets were not very nice (no seat) and was annoyed that the toilet attendant (who wasn't there when we went... More
