Students not only learned here, but also lived, the stay in the school lasted for about ten years. Medresa Bu Inania, located in Fez, is one of the most important and beautiful medres. The building was built around the year 1356 commissioned by Sultan Abu Inana Faris, after which he was named. It is also distinguished by the fact of having a minaret. It is a typical FOURTEENTH-century medresa with extremely rich ornaments. The courtyard is surrounded by four interior façades. Each centimeter of the walls is covered with a magnificent intricate ornament-the walls to a certain height are covered with fably laid ceramic tiles zellidż with a typical geometric pattern, above are marble stucco, carved quotes from the Koran, openwork Stucco ornaments, miraculous carving in cedar.
