Every little detail makes you appreciate ancient art. The tiles are all naturally dyed and still hold the pigment of color. The tile work is all hand done and no two flowers look different. It's all unison. How the heck did they do it all?...More

20 dirhams entrance fee is well worth it. the architecture is breath taking. the green and blue hues of the zellij tiling has a psychological cooling effect. you could stare into those geometric patterns all day long.

The madrasa school with its tiny student rooms gives one a sense of structure and order for the time it existed. The architectural courtyard is elegant and orderly like one feels the school was. Wonderful picture area.

Depends how young they are, it's architecture, so their interest might wander if you stay too long. Nothing inappropriate inside and well worth the visit.
