Marrakesh – Ben Youssef Madrassa

The Ben Youssef Madrassa was an Islamic college in Marrakesh, Morocco. Named after the Almoravid sultan Ali ibn Yusuf who ruled between 1106–1142 CE. It is the largest Madrassa in all of Morocco. It was an active Madrassa until its closure in 1960, the building was then refurbished and reopened to the public as an historical site in 1982.

The intricacies of building is hard to describe, so I’d recommend everyone to one day see for themselves.
