A very interesting place to visit with very interesting architecture and see if you can work out which part of the pool is the deepest

“Beautiful Historical Dormitory”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

The interior of the dormitory was so ornate and beautiful. We spent a long time exploring the nooks and crannies of the expansive building! If you are staying in Marrakech you must make time for a visit!

“Stunning building dating back to Shakespeare's time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

This building, restored in the past 20 years, was a sort of campus for Koranic scholars. Most of the rooms are small cells, plain and simple, many without daylight, where the scholars used to sleep. The most amazing part was the central courtyard where the patterning (tiles, wood and plaster) was overwhelmingly beautiful. A peaceful, inspiring space - definitely worth a visit.
