If you have already been exposed to Moroccan architecture, you might want to skip this one, as there is not to much to see. I personally enjoyed ‘El Glaoui Palace’ more, despite it being run down you can walk around and enter different rooms. Pros:...More

The courtyard of the Medersa is gorgeous. Yes, the designs and work is similar to elsewhere in Morocco, but that does not detract from the beauty. I note other reviewers have said it is not worth the 20 DRH entrance fee. I strongly disagree -...More

Firstly, I need to point out the the map reference for this site on Trip Advisor is wrong. The address itself is right (it is about 100 m from the Blue Gate in the medina) but when you click on the address it opens up...More

Attarin was closed for construction so we were advised to visit this one instead. Small but well kept and you can see amasingly detailed work all fresh post rain.

Paid 20 dihrams, which is twice the price of otehr attractions in Morocco. The main courtyard is ornate, but after a while you get sick of seeing the same Islamic architecture everywhere The viewing is restricted essentially to the main courtyard

Tucked away in the Medina, this is one of those places you could so easily miss. Small entrance fee, but worth it. Enter through amazing doors to a court yard with exquisite carving, tiling, woodwork. Really lovely views of the Mosque Tower.

The intricate carving, sculpting, and craftsmanship in the courtyard and elsewhere could take up a whole roll of film (well, a memory card nowadays), and not have all the angles you want to remember. The dorm rooms and rooftop views are beautiful to see as...More
