A quick little stop near the tanneries. Costs 20dirham to get in. Honestly takes less than 10 minutes because it's really a courtyard and connected room. Nice tile work and architecture

There is surely at least one bigger medersa - not sure about the name but it's close to Bab Boujloud, with the same entrance fee (20 dh). But this one is still really nice, open from early in the morning, when you can escape here from the already busy streets. There are beautiful tiles and really preserved detail work on... More

Another beautiful well maintained quranschool with tiles, carvings and ornaments. Gives you also a little relaxation in the midst of the medina.

Although small it is filled with visual delights. The architecture is beautiful and the use of tiles, ceder wood and stucco walls combine to make it a place you want to see.

An old madrasa (Islamic religious school), now a museum. Beautiful architecture and artistic elements, including green and white tiles and lacy patterns in wood and plaster. Well worth a stop.

This medersa is beautiful on the inside. The lovely carved cedar wood and stucco walls and the colorful Moroccan tiles all compliment each other to make a welcoming courtyard. It is quiet inside almost hard to believe that the medina is on the other side of the door. Well worth the small entrance fee.

An old Madersa (seminary) which now serves a museum. The architecture is amazing. The intricate mosaics all around the compound is worth the effort trying to find it in the maze of streets
