Overlooked by many tourists, Meknes is a bustling modern city of nearly a million in northern Morocco, about 80 miles inland from the capital of Rabat. Local hero Moulay Ismail made Meknes Morocco's hub at the end of the 17th and beginning of the 18th centuries, and his mausoleum is one of the city's main attractions. The Museum of Moroccan Art (housing fascinating jewels and artifacts) and Bab Mansour (the largest and most stunning of the city's gates) are other Meknes sights not to be missed.

Bou Inania Madrasa, after paying a tiny entrance fee: we were the only visitors at that moment making it an extremely peaceful and interesting visit. Though small, the Islamic school resembled those we had seen in Fez and in fact was built during the 14th century by the Marinid dynasty and is an extremely exquisite example of that period particularly thanks to its wooden carvings, marble decorations, and tiles. During our visit, we were even able to climb to the rooftop where we had a nice view of the surrounding old town
