Attarin was closed for construction so we were advised to visit this one instead. Small but well kept and you can see amasingly detailed work all fresh post rain.

Paid 20 dihrams, which is twice the price of otehr attractions in Morocco. The main courtyard is ornate, but after a while you get sick of seeing the same Islamic architecture everywhere The viewing is restricted essentially to the main courtyard

I must say that the one in Marrakech is much more impressive and allows to step inside. Enjoyed our Time only because we had some spare hours to pass in the mdina. Of course, if you l've never visited similar place it's a must see!
