Medersa Bou Inania

Edit This

The most outstanding example of Merinid architecture. Even if you skip all the other Medersas, this is the one you shouldn't miss. Since it is still in use, you may be asked to leave at prayer time. The Medersa is just behind the Bab Boujeloud and easy to find.

It was built in the 1350ies by the sultan Abou Inan Faris, from whom it received its name. Is is said to be the largest and most important medersa in Fès.
You should make an effort and climb up to the roof, from where you have a beautiful view on Fès.
