24 Medersa Ben Youssef Small Courtyard in Marrakech, Morocco

This is one of seven inner courtyards of Medersa Ben Youssef. Behind the elaborately carved balconies are the former student dormitories. The rooms were so small and sparse that they resembled cells. The school closed in 1960. After an extensive restoration, the madrasa reopened as a tourist attraction. Medersa Ben Youssef is one of the best examples of Moorish architecture in the city.
