Traveling to Fez : Ibno Inania’s Medrasa

Built in the 1350s for Sultan Abu Inan Faris, the madrasa Bou Inania is the only madrasa in the city which has a minaret. It is also the only one open to non-Muslims. This openness further strengthens its public aspect, already aggravated by the proximity of the neighboring shops. Issue of Marinid architecture, the madrasa Bou Inania is characterized by rich decorations and intricately detailed as evidenced by pieces of wood carved with star motifs or traditional mosaics.

Practical information: open daily from 8:30 am to 12h and 14h to 17h30.
Admission is 10 dirhams (about € 1).
