We visited this on our last day in Marrakech and we are so glad that we did! Ornate is an understatement! The building is phenomenal. There are such intricate carvings. The entire building is stunning! A must-see!!

Stunning building and welcome respite from the souks. A cheap ticket lets you in to both this and the museum next door and is good value.

You get a real feeling for how the students lived by being able to go into the rooms (cells, more like).

We thought we'd visit as we had several days in Marrakech but I wasn't particularly excited at the thought. It was AMAZING! A true hidden gem.

I love the tiles and all that wood work and painted!
All that colors, its a incredible work!
Like all traditions had things very beautiful and some others very bad, but a nice Museum to visit!
