“Truly beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Madersas are schools of Koranic study. As non-Muslims aren't allowed in mosques in Marrakech, this is your best chance to see the best of religious architecture and decoration, and it's well worth it. You pay a small fee to go in, and you might not be allowed in prayer time, but we went away and came back, and we weren't sorry

“This is in great condition considering it's age (circa 1350). Rooftop terrace has best view of the city.”

If you're a history buff, even mildly, you are guaranteed to like this place. They don't build them like this anymore

“Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Loved visiting this medersa. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Fes, simply because it is so accessible being near the top of the talaa kabira on the way to most other sites. It also won't take you long to see. We visited late in the afternoon and it was almost empty. Very beautiful example of fourteenth century Islamic art and craftsmanship. I hope it undergoes further restoration work.
