The Bou Inania Medersa is a must see. The amazing tile work, carving in wood and plaster is beyond description. The craftsmanship is inspiring. I would definitely recommend this Medersa to be part of your Morocco experience!

The history and site built into the middle of the souk was fascinating and well worth the search. Make sure to head to the rooftop!

What a beautiful place. The architecture is absolutely gorgeous and for the price it is ridiculous not to visit. Go in the morning when there are fewer people. A must visit!

You have to visit this place if you are interested in Moroccan culture . It is beautiful and you can see much more than in Fes where there is also a medersa that you can visit but it is a only downstairs. In Meknes, you will have access to the whole medersa so that you can understand better how it... More

It was established in the 14th century and has remained its splendor through the years. An elaborately decorated courtyard, a lot of carved wood and colorful zellij tilework make the whole building an entrancing sight. And next to the Grand Mosque the terrace offers a fine view of the Medina. Well worth a visit.

Here you will be able to see a great monument. The artistic influence is obvious and very well thought through.

There is not a lot to it but the details in the main area gets me. It is magnificent piece of Islamic architect. It's not a must see. But I wouldn't miss it if you have a taste for the Islamic design

Even if it hasn't the greatness of the Imperial city, this beautiful medersa is a little jewel of medieval arabian religious architecture. It stands in the heart of the medina, its visit is free. You can admire the courtyard, then walk up to the first floor entering the small rooms of the students. But the best thing is going on... More

This old medersa (school) is in the heart of the médina. The entrance is a bit hidden, behind very old doors. Inside you find a traditional school building, decorated all over. The woodwork is more than wonderful. Don't forget to visit the roof for a beautiful view over the old town.
