Fantastic, do not miss - we went with our guide, Abdul, who really explained its significance to us, which makes a big difference, as there are no (or few) explanatory signs etc

the Medersa is worth seeing - lovely architecture and Islamic design, very peaceful place to spend an hour or so. Recommended.

Another lovely courtyard, however the difference being this was school rather than a palace. The detail in the carving around the courtyard is good to see and the rooms upstairs, which are hollow shells allow you to view the courtyard from a different view! All in all a good place to visit!

Magnificent moorish Islamic architecture - unspoilt. Unsurprisingly popular with tourists - wait for a lull between groups so you can see it without many others about.

A must see spot in Marrakech. Make sure you have a guide so as to learn more about the Madrasa and don't forget your camera.
