the most important mosques in Fez
In the depths of the Medina is its heart: the ninth-century Al-Qarawiyyin Mosque, one of the most important mosques in Fez, and perhaps also the first university in the world. It has one of the largest libraries of Islam, and featured dozens of departments. Each teacher (or alim) was surrounded by their students "talib" around the pillar of the prayer hall. They taught law, language, grammar, mathematics, medicine and astronomy. At the moment non-Muslims can not visit. It's a shame because the ablutions courtyard is the most beautiful in Morocco.
