About Al-attarine Madrasa, Fes

The Attarin Madrasa is one of Fes’s must-see architectural structures. It was built sometime in the fourteenth century on the command of Sultan Abu Said. The building served as a school for students of Islamic religion as well as their residence right up to the 20th century. It is close to the oldest continuously functioning university of the world, the Al Karaouine Mosque. The madrasa has been named after the neighbouring perfume market. Upon entering, you will see the huge open courtyard and the impressive marble fountain. Standing here, you can see the delicate motifs and the stunning architecture that sets this madrasa apart from the others. The prayer hall is right across this courtyard. There are around 30 rooms in the building to accommodate students. This building has been painstakingly preserved to retain its classical beauty and charm.
