4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Some beautiful mosaic work and wooden and stone carvings inside parts of the building. Interesting history. A peacefull space amidst the hustle of the souq.

“Beautiful building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Beautiful building to visit but that is all it is, we had a guide to explain the history of the school and what the different rooms were used for.

“Worth the visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Worth the visit. For those with a view to history, this is a must see. Use a private guide. Not one that comes up to you in the street.

“one of the few monuments to see in Marrakesh - a must in my opinion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

The patio is nice, the rooms of the former students impressive (as very small). You have to pay to enter but you get to see some nice architecture.
