“Go visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

This is a very old Islamic school, situated in the heart of Marrakech. Superb architecture - cheap tickets to this and the museum next door, both very worth while a visit. Crown prince Willem-Alexander of The Netherlands and his wife visited, as well as Queen Sofia of Spain.

“A must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

One of the best-maintained buildings in the Medina. For best value, but a joint entry ticket to the Medersa and Marrakech Museum from either site

“Architectural treasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

A beautiful building. The perfect place for hide and seek. I sat in the central courtyard and just took in the beauty around me whilst grabbing some sun.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We visited this on our last day in Marrakech and we are so glad that we did! Ornate is an understatement! The building is phenomenal. There are such intricate carvings. The entire building is stunning! A must-see!!

“Well Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Stunning building and welcome respite from the souks. A cheap ticket lets you in to both this and the museum next door and is good value.
