The architecture is great - it made it a little more interesting having a knowledgable guide with us - he was 150dh for three hours and for this visit he definitely added a lot.

There isn't much guidance here (for example the marble on the floor was traded with Italy - 1kg marble for 1kg sugar) so the guide made it much more interesting.

It was 10 dh to enter but well worth it.

Madersas are schools of Koranic study. As non-Muslims aren't allowed in mosques in Marrakech, this is your best chance to see the best of religious architecture and decoration, and it's well worth it. You pay a small fee to go in, and you might not be allowed in prayer time, but we went away and came back, and we weren't sorry

Loved visiting this medersa. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Fes, simply because it is so accessible being near the top of the talaa kabira on the way to most other sites. It also won't take you long to see. We visited late in the afternoon and it was almost empty. Very beautiful example of fourteenth century Islamic art and craftsmanship. I hope it undergoes further restoration work.
