Nice riad to visit

This Medresa is simply a pure exponent of Fes imperial era, internal decoration is flawless and extremely detailled. You can spend quite a while admiring the central patio, its gates and walls, its definitely a must see in Fes.

Originally an educational institute and a place of prayer, this place is definitely a beautiful spot to visit to check out the architecture styles of morocco as non-muslims are not allowed in the mosques. Filled with intricate mosaic work, the visit on sunny days for great photographs of the medersa. There's a small fee to pay for entry (20dirhams for... More
