My experience

Medersa Ben Youssef has been a beautiful place in Marrakech for which I had a lot of pleasure to visit while my stay in the red city. The smallness of student’s rooms has been a surprise for me but, however, architecture is a true beauty that we turn over in all corners to admire it. The view over courtyard from student’s rooms is magnificent and once downstairs the courtyard takes another dimension.

Medersa Ben Youssef

Merdersa Ben Youssef is an old Koranic school, which was very famous at that time. It is in the Mouassine surburbs, in the northern of Medina. It situated near to souks, Art Museum of Mouassine, Marrakech’s Museum and Maison de la Photo.

This school has been built in 1570 with a typical arab andalusian architecture. Its name comes from the sultan Ali Ben Youssef who fortified Marrakesh in XIIe centuary. Rooms, upstairs, are very small and it was in those rooms that 9000 students coming from around the world for studying theology, slept, ate, and lived.

Medersa is an arab term that means muslim university of theology.

The main courtyard is provided of a beautiful white marble and wall are decorated with a colorful mosaic with painting of colorful flowers. In the middle of the courtyard, there is a big rectangular pool, and in the front of the entrance, there is a dark prayer room divided into 3 parts. In this room there are impressive marble’s columns.

Why I recommend it? 

La Medersa Ben Youssef is a superb place that must be visited because it takes part of Marrakech’s culture and, therefore, Morocco as well. This school was famous at that time and for its beauty its has a good place in a cultural visit while a journey in Morocco.
