Madrasa Ben Youssef

The medersa, where students memorized the Qur'an by rote, was founded by the Merenid Sultan Abou el Hassan in the 14th century. It was, however, almost completely rebuilt under the Saadian rulers in the 1560s and it is they who made their distinctive mark in its architecture and art. See the near-contemporary Saadian Tombs for similar beauty of decoration.
