A road with a very tasteful design that used to be a school way back in history. It's not the most spectacular building but the small details are beautiful.

A Medersa is a school where the Koran is studied; the Attarin Medersa is the Medersa of the Spice Sellers and is accessed directly from a very busy, colorful, and noisy souk. Once inside, the Medersa visitors feel an oasis of calm. The walls are thick and visitors can barely hear the shouting of the vendors and hawkers outside. Built... More

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.
