The Ben Youssef Madrasah

Map

Built in 1570 by the saadite, this former koranic school – the largest in the Maghreb- accommodated up to 900 pupils. Today it is a jewel of traditional architectural. On the first floor are the 132 pupil bedrooms, 100 of which are minute, almost cell-like. Below are the study rooms. The prayer room is lit by small plaster decorated windows. In the center of the school is a white Carrere marble pool. The Madrasah was rebuilt by the saadites in the 16 th century when 1 kg of sugar was traded for 1 kg of marble. The Medersa was for more than four centuries a home for students in search of knowledge in various sciences, including theology. It had 132 rooms for non-Marrakesh students and could accommodate up to 900 students. Opposite the entrance door, on the other side of the rectangular basin, there is the prayer room made up of three naves delimited by marble pillars supporting arches with facades carved with ornamental motifs. The central nave overlooks a small semi-circular room whose opening is sumptuously decorated with floral and geometric motifs..
