Lovely visit

This monument is lovely, we were explained it used to be a school and we were impressed with the great wood work inside this riad.

I have limited time to visit places and I want to see something of value when I do. This was a waste in my opnion. There is much more to see in Fes and many nices Medersas in Morocco.

There is a fee to enter here. I do not know how much as our guide paid. But, if I describe the inside, you make the call whether you will enter or not. It takes a mere 5-10 minutes to see inside.

So, yes the history etc is interesting. But, it's not a very good attraction. Poorly run and maintained, very little that you can actually see! Seems to be full of tourists tentatively trying to open locked doors, slightly incredulous that they've already seen it all.... I wouldnt say don't visit as for 20dh to see something historic perhaps you will... More

Compared to other medersas, such as in Marrakech, this is mediocre. The entry fee, taken by bored and surly men, is not worth what there is to see, which is minimal and given no explanation. Save your pennies for the medina (you'll need them for when pay your 'good price').

This Medersa is nice to see if you pass by. It's close to the blue gate. Not expensive, only 20 dirhams.

Someone rightly guided ..that visiting fes means a whirlwind on senses ..and it's better to do and cultural and ND historic research so that u may be abreast of what u seeing and why u seeing . Coz sometimes u have less time the way we had ..and the guide literally sifts past without giving narratives as such..maybe our guide... More

You cannot possibly be in Fez, and not visit magnificent Islamic monuments, such as this madrassa. It is breathtakingly beautiful and a great experience, both spiritual and physical. The carvings are fantastic. However, I recommend reading about it before going in. In general, before visit to Fez, do a bit of historic and cultural research, because it will definitely help....

impressive morrocan architecture, but nothing too special you couldnt see elsewhere in morroco. still worth visiting if you are around Fes, too bad they dont allow to tour the interior spaces of the madrasa.. anyway very impressive architectures and beautiful ornaments
