Defo worth a visit to see the amazing architecture. Unlike Ben yousuf in Marrakech, you can only look around in the courtyard but is still worth it. A ticket is required and can be bought at the entrance for 20 Dirham.

If you're into architecture and the beautiful wood carvings of the Qur'an scriptures on the walls of the school. Go here! You have to pay to get in, but it's totally worth it. Too bad we can't see the scholars' rooms though.

The Medersa is best visited early to avoid the large tour groups - very close to Bab Boujloud (Blue Gate); it is amazing to imagine how many students lived and learned there and what inspired such beautifully intricate workmanship on tile and wood
