  • I visited this Medersa (Madrasa)-Koranic school-Fes in April 2018, very nice indeed. entrance 20 Dirham 82 euros). Can be visited, at least that was when I was, only the courtyard, but so worth it. The inlays and decorations typical of Islamic art are magnificent. Small note: despite having an "official" Guide, I had to ask myself to visit it, because that tended to take us mainly in stores "agreement". It is very close to the blue door on the Rue Talaa Kebira, the road down towards the Centre of the Medina. near there is also what remains of the ancient water clock, which place the photos along with those of the Medersa. As throughout the Muslim world, I recommend an appropriate clothing.

  • The entry is not given for the country (20Dh), and does not give access to the Court. Pretty nice, but not worth the Marrakchi Madrassah. Frankly, go your way.
