  • Ben Youssef Medersa
    Marrakesh, Morocco
    Probably the most beautiful building in Marrakesh, this medieval Islamic school features intricate woodwork, stucco, and tiny student dormitories with balconies.
  • Saadian Tombs
    Marrakesh, Morocco
    This site next to the old kasbah was used for burials throughout the Saadian period (beginning 1557), then sealed up for centuries. It contains two mausoleums and nearly 200 tiled tombs of royals.
