The 14th Century Attarine Medersa is well known for its gates, inside which there's a lovely zellij patterned courtyard with a memorable fountain, surrounded by unusual square pillars.  The prayer hall has an impressive carved wooden dome, which you may not be allowed in to see, but you can see the carved plasterwork lattice of windows inlaid with Iraqi glass.

Careful coming out, you're near some of the liveliest souks.
