Ben Youssef Madrosa
This is a Koran teaching school which dates back to the fourteenth century. There are learning quarters and student accommodation. It’s the Moorish-Spanish style architecture which makes this monument such a popular tourist site with an attractive courtyard and a mosque which dates back to the twelfth century. In fact the school was built around the mosque centuries later.

Menara Gardens
Menara Gardens are a delightful sight when you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Located just outside the city the gardens are one of the most photographed places in Morocco and when you arrive you will understand why. The gardens are a lush landscape filled with palm trees which give welcome shade on a hot day and beautiful olive groves. A great place to relax or enjoy a leisurely walk while soaking up the warm sun that the Moroccan climate has to offer.
