Worth to visit! Marvelous decorations. They furnished two student rooms to show you the differences between a peasant and a city student. It is a good idea to visit it together with the museum.

Very peaceful and beautiful monument in the heart of the Marrakech Souk. Liked the caligrapher who will inscribe your names in arabic for a very reasonable price. And loved the mosaics, the fountains, in fact the entire experience.

Our of all the places we visited, except for maybe the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca the Madrasa al ben youssef had the most beautiful architecture and mosaics that we saw. I highly recommend a visit.

The architecture of this place is breathtaking, and although there were lots of visitors around, one can almost feel the tranquil atmosphere

Hidden within the souk, this was a bit of a walk but the architecture was beautiful with lots of carved details. It would be a shame to go to Marrakech and not take the time to visit this Gem
