Medersa Ben Youssef

A former coranic school


Kaat Benahid, Medina - website

Located in the medina. If you only have the time for one visit, choose this one.

Built in 1570, it’s a jewel of the arab-andalusian architecture. This former coranic school is one of the biggest of its kind in the whole Maghreb region: it used to host more than 900 students.
