“Beautiful Koranic school”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

i was a bit sceptic, but definitely worth visiting. come to think of it, it was the best attraction in Marrakech. its part of the ticket to the museum. therefore its worth visiting both places. minimum will be 30 minute, we spent 1 hour and some. great picture spots.

“Fascinating and evocative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Very enjoyable and could imagine student life in the Medresa due to ability to climb around the buildings. Beautiful architecture and a great visit

“Amazingly courtyard and buildings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

This old Quranic school is so amazing on a sunny day. In the courtyard you can look around at so many beautiful details. Afterwards going around you can see how the students used to live, and that was really cool to step in a room, and look how things used to be and how people used to live.

Also, you can take a look out of into the courtyard in some windows. Leaving one behind in the courtyard and you can have some nice pictures with your head popping out of some beautiful building :)
