Amazing architecture and incredible interior details. Stunning building, that is a must-see. Could be a bit challenging, if you try to find the madrasa on your own, because it is in the medina, which is a real maze.
We have been in Marrakech twice with the intention of visiting the Ben Yousef Madrasa but not having had the time.
This time we sat out to visit the School as our no. 1 priority only to find out it was closed due to renovation....More
Recommended Café’s and restaurants whilst sightseeing (2 Replies)
Hello all, We will be returning back to Marrakech next week and whilst it will not be our first time, we are taking my elderly mother this time.

Whilst she is able to walk around happily, I want to build in frequent stops especially if it is hot (which it was last October when we were there). With this in mind, can anyone recommend (if you have been there and loved it) café’s and...More

Day 2 is impossible to fit al your wishes. Did you check the opening hours of jardin majorelle? To be honest, ik like the garden in the afternoon, when the sun shines in all gardens. Day 3: combine your dinner with a visit to Chez Ali.

In Morocco it's more commonly called Eid el Kebir (big Eid) and is the equivalent of the Christian Christmas holidays, so expect disruption. Have a read of the article under 'top questions'. Djemaa el Fna is an open square and similarly entry to the Cyber Park will be unrestricted. You can only visit the mosque if you are muslim.
