Medersa Bou Inania, Fez

Talâa Kebira
Morocco's insider take:

Open: Daily 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

This theological college, marked by its green tiled roof, is a prime example of Merinid architecture, and it's the most beautiful of Kairaounie University's residential colleges. Inside, elegant calligraphy graces the ceramic tile walls. The marble floors, sculpted cedar, and carved stucco walls—made with a concoction of plaster and egg white—have held up since this masterpiece medersa was built in 1350. Since it is still in use, non-Muslims must depart during prayer time.
