This building housed an ancient Islamic School. The open courtyard has amazing tiles and carvings on the walls. The little wood windows on the second story are the cells occupied by the students. Be sure and go to the terrace for the view.

As opposed to many attractions this one is not crowded and certainly worth exploring all over. The fee is minimal and at the very least you can climb up and enjoy the view over the town. But also the interior is worth seeing and mostly...More

Unlike the crowded Medersas of Fes, this one is tranquil and not yet much restored. It is deep in the Medina with not much of an obvious entrance. Worth finding. Go up to the roof and admire the minaret and the view. And don't miss...More

I saw this medersa in Meknes before the one in Fez and I prefer it. Three advantages of this one is that while it is smaller than the one in Fez, it was uncrowded, it is easy to reach in the medina (you do not...More

For the small fee of 10 dhrms you get to see a beautifully ornate building that was used as a sort of koranic school. It's now deserted, but the place looks so different from any other religious establishements I've ever visited

20 dirhams will get you through the door (about 3$CAD). Easy to find, just off of Lahdim Square. We were the only visitors when we went and our hotel manager (Riad Ritaj) accompanied us and gave us a tour of the place explaining the moucharabieh,...More
