Cheraatin Madrasa was completed in the 17th century and catered for 150 students as the biggest school at the time. The architecture is very impressive.

A splendid historic school that every tourist should visit in my opinion. It is a pure bliss to walk in the patio.

On the contrary of the - indeed much more beautiful - medersas Biu Inania and Attarine, this one has the monopoly advantage that you can visit the complete building, and that's very interesting. And we where the only tourists there!

Very beautiful and impressive. There is a fee to this attraction less than 1 euro. The best way to visit it is with a guide to explain you about the kings in Marroco and history of the place.
