Description

Built by the Marinid sultan Uthman II Abu Said between 1323 and 1325, Al-Attarine Madrasa in Fez functions as a religious school and is one of the city’s top attractions. Its location at the entrance to the spice and perfume market in the fascinating medina of Fez, gives Al-Attarine, the madrasa of the perfumers, its name. Al-Attarine Madrasa is known for its fine cedar wood carvings, stucco and elaborate zellige tile-work. The courtyard found here is extremely popular and is the most decorated area. Visitors will come across some breathtaking architecture as well as a large marble fountain, and a prayer room at the end of the courtyard. From the madrasa’s rooftop, visitors are offered incredible views of the Kairaouine Mosque and the surrounding city.
