5/24.- Meknes, medina, mosque


The Medina of Meknes was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1996 because of its harmonious combination of elements of Islamic and European origin in its design and planning.

In the Medina of Meknes one can find one of the most beautiful Koran schools in Morocco, the Medersa Bou Inania. It was built in the 14th century during the times of Sultan Abou el-Hassan. On the second floor one can visit the cells of the students. From the roof terrace one has a nice view of the Grand Mosque.

Non Muslims are not allowed inside the mosques in Morocco. Apart from the richly decorated gate, there is not much more to see in the Grand Mosque.
