“Amazing detail!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

One of our highlights. The detail in the architecture is extremely impressive and I could easily have just sat there for hours if time would have allowed...

“Very Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

It was a nice place, with beautiful tiles and we took a lot of pictures. If you have a guide, he can explain things to you.

“Delicate architecture of an ancient college”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

If you admired pictures of the Alhambra of Granada, here you find the same kind of architecture, the same craftsmanship, the atmosphere of spirituality and everything well conserved.

“Exquisite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

The Bou Inania Medersa is hidden in the medina - our guide took us there, but I don't think it would be too hard to find on your own. It's absolutely gorgeous, like every other medersa/madrasa we saw on our trip, but this one had a slightly more lived-in feel (I believe it's still used as a mosque), and we really liked that quality. Definitely worth visiting in Fes.

“Beautiful woodwork”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

This was our first Medersa in Fez and we were very impressed. The doors were beautiful. It wasn't crowed and you could just wander around and be impressed.
