Morocco Series: The intricate, breathtaking Ali Ben Youssef Medersa in Marrakesh


I’m not exaggerating – the Ali Ben Youssef Medersa was unbelievable. Every surface, nook, and cranny was adorned with meticulous stucco, or wood detailing. See for yourself.

*please be patient during photo upload – I’ve specially uploaded higher-res images so you guys get extra detail! 🙂

Amazing detail!

This is a shot looking out of an upper level window – the detail extends all the way up to the roofs.

Beautiful views out the dormitory windows. The dorm rooms themselves are actually very modest rooms.
