The Bou Inania Medersa

Fez is a stunning city full of landscapes and natural mountains. one of the greatest icons is the medersas (Koranic universities) which bear living witness to the city’s intellectual and scientific past. They are the work of the Merinid sultans, and played a prominent part in political, educational, and cultural life. Founded in the 13th century, the first to be built was the Seffarine Medersa, outstanding for the restrained elegance of its decor. The Bou Inania Medersa is remarkable for the sumptuousness of its architecture - its wealth of sculpted stuccowork and carved cedar wood, and its rich onyx and marble decor. Ibn Khaldoun taught there. The El-Attarine Medersa was built in 1325 and is one of the wonders of the city, a true masterpiece, its decor - sculpted marble and calligraphy, cedar wood arches, finely worked mosaics and arabesques - of breath-taking delicacy. The Cherratine Medersa was built by Sultan Moulay Rachid in the 17th century, and could accommodate up to two hundred students at a time.
