“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

You have to see this. The architecture is gorgeous, the silence is magnificent... It's not a Quran school anymore, but it still feels like an intellectual respite in the middle of bustling Marrakesh.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

This Quran school is one of my favorite attractions in Marrakech. A definite must-see. Try to go when it's not packed with tourists though.

“Very Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

This place was stunning and a welcome break from the heat/crazyness of Marrakech. We walked around it for a while and enjoyed how beautiful it was. Lovely visit!

“Must-see in Marrakech”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

This place is a must-see. Do take a guide if one is available. The place is beautiful and very detailed, Moroccan architecture is beautiful overall. This place is worth seeing if you appreciate architecture and history.
