Fodor's Review

Built by the Merenids in the 14th century, one of the medina's finest medersas has been beautifully restored. It's named for the sahrij (pool) on which its patio is centered, with rich chocolate-color cedar wall carvings and some of the oldest zellij mosaic tiling in the country. It's still a working school, so head up the narrow steps leading to empty rooms over the central patio and you may hear the chanting of Koranic verses.
