Medersa Ben Youssef Worth a visit for the lovely architecture and a glimpse into the history of Marrakech. Don't be led astray by "helpful" locals who tell you it's closed and then lead you to the smelly tanneries.
Medersa Ben Youssef The delicate intricacy of the gibs, carved cedar, and zellij in the central courtyard are beautiful. Muslim students once studied here, and tiny upper-level rooms surround the open courtyard.
A stunning confluence of carved cedar, zellij tile work, and ornate stucco from the 15th century. Brook a private tour and visit the tiny dormitory spaces where some of the 900-odd students lived.
Pretty cool and has lots of nice colors. Slightly boring because of how empty it is. Definitely worth it to pay an extra 10 Dh to visit the museum which provides interesting art and info on Morocco.

I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.
