Located Near

The Madrassa is a Riad (traditional house with a patio garden in the center ) located less than 7 minute walk from the mythical place that is Jamaa El Fna Square, making it easily accessible for all. Most of the monuments and tourist hotpots in the city are within walking distance from the riad. We offer excursions to the Atlas Mountains, Sahara Desert and the beautiful coast of Morocco, with departures guaranteed everyday and discounts given depending on the size of the group. We make our guests the delicious traditional dishes that Morocco is famous for and light vegetarian food at a very good price. The terrace boasts a smoothie bar where we offer our travelers a wide range of smoothies and juices. Here you can enjoy the never ending magic of Marrakech. We also offer a number of different activities to keep you busy, including photography lessons, cooking classes and arts & crafts workshops.
