Very beautiful plasterwork and tiles. If you only have time for one, go to Bou Inania, but this one is also nice and the entrance is only 10 or 20 Dh.

This isn't the biggest Madarasa of the lot. The others give you so much more to explore but what it lacks in size, it makes up in design and intricate details.

Nice to visit with architecture. Great photos to show. We have been there on friday when people go for pray. Nothing more to show.

A quick little stop near the tanneries. Costs 20dirham to get in. Honestly takes less than 10 minutes because it's really a courtyard and connected room. Nice tile work and architecture

There is surely at least one bigger medersa - not sure about the name but it's close to Bab Boujloud, with the same entrance fee (20 dh). But this one is still really nice, open from early in the morning, when you can escape here...More

Another beautiful well maintained quranschool with tiles, carvings and ornaments. Gives you also a little relaxation in the midst of the medina.

An old madrasa (Islamic religious school), now a museum. Beautiful architecture and artistic elements, including green and white tiles and lacy patterns in wood and plaster. Well worth a stop.
