This is a very typical building from Fez which is still in excellent shape. The interior court is beautiful.

This was an overpowering experience. The architecture and the decorative manoevres in this Medressa were a sensory overdose. Every corner you look to, you will find colour, form, shape that will gratify your thirst for beauty
