  • Only the inner courtyard is visible. Beautiful with its sculpted wood (all visible ceilings around the Court), its plaster work and its mosaics... Beautiful view of the mausolet

  • Is one of the few places where you can get in (paying a ticket very cheap) is rather fascinating although many areas are prohibited. Worth it for the atmosphere and the beautiful majolicas

  • Well known Mederssa of Fez visitors with very beautiful Arab-Andalusian architecture. Must visit it early in the morning to avoid the crowds
