This place is gorgeous. If you want really nice pictures, go in the late afternoon when the sun is starting to set.

Breathtaking Islamic art... well worth going to but IGNORE helpful men who tell you that "it is the last day of the Berber leather fair" and drag you off to the Tanneries instead.

lack of information, no furniture, just more and more of the same, although what you see it is pretty, the way to the madrasa could be sneaky

As the local Mosques are not open to non-Muslims, this old madrasa for boys gives you a little insight into historic Islamic interiors and architecture.
