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.

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!

This medersa dates from the 17th century and is different from other the other, older medersas. It is much taller and less decorated, but still very elegant thanks to its large Moorish arches on four sides around a courtyard. This is also the only medersa...More

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.
