Bou Inania Madrasa - Review
The Bou Inania Madrasa was founded in 1351 AD by the then Sultan of Fes, Abu Inan Faris. The sultan gave his own name to the madrasa which later when on to become the Grand Mosque of the city. This structure is used for educating students as well as for religious congregations. It is one of the few religious places in Morocco that allow non-Muslims to enter and view the premises. This is the only madrasa with a minaret in Fes, signifying its importance to the city. Since the minaret is used for religious purposes by the imam, its access is limited to Muslims. Despite its age, the madrasa is well conserved and gives you a solid glimpse into Fes’s rich cultural past.
