Ali ben Youssef Medersa
The medersa is the largest theological college and was buildt by the Saadians in 1565 (and much restored in the 1960's).
Altough undergoing a painstaking restoration, it is a peacful and meditative place with some absolutely stunning examples of stucco decoration.
Upstairs the are students' cells. As usual , they are small and bare. It's hard to imagine how, as is claimed they crammed as many as 900 people into these rooms.
