Al-Attarine Madrasa Tours

star-4
4 Reviews
Al-Attarine Madrasa
Located at the entrance to Fez’s sprawling spice and perfume market, the exquisite Al-Attarine Madrasa (the ‘Madrasa of the Perfumers’) paints a striking picture against the ramshackle stalls and timeworn cobblestones of the surrounding souks.

Built by the Marinid Sultan Uthman II Abu Said in the early 14th century, the madrasa was once an important center for learning and spirituality. The show-stopping central courtyard is the main highlight of a visit - a sumptuous example of Islamic architecture, with ornate pillars, expertly carved stuccos and magnificent zellij fashioned from hand-cut glazed tiles. Visitors can also peek into the lavish prayer hall and the comparatively sparse student quarters that look out over the courtyard.

Practical Info

The Al-Attarine Madrasa is located in Fez Medina (Fez el-Bali), close to the Kairaouine Mosque and University, and is open daily from 8.30am-12.30pm, and 2.30-6.30pm. Admission at the time of writing is 10 dirham. 
Address: Fez, Morocco
Hours: Daily from 8.30am-12.30pm, and 2.30-6.30pm.

Jump with me into a time machine and travel 1200 years back in History. My name is Abdou Rahim. I was born and grew up in the historical car-free medina of Fes. I'm a Professional Tour Guide (licensed by the Ministry of Tourism). I love to show tourists our historical sights and attractions, but most of all, l love to tell them why they are important, to relate relevant stories and events to these sights. I like to capture their attention and make them feel as though they are part of the story. l have met tourists from all parts of the world , which helped me discover and understand their cultures, traditions, and customs. It taught me how to deal with them with courtesy and respect. Tourists come to visit our country to have an enjoyable time; Equipped with a fluency in English, a good knowledge of history and a fair sense of humour, I feel it's my duty to help them achieve that goal and make sure their Fes tour with me is FEScinating.
