Like most other Moroccan cities, it has its medina filled with a labyrinth of narrow streets and souks but back in the twelfth century it was also a huge centre of religious learning and it has many "medersas" or Quoranic Learning Centres and lots of mosques to go with that, all within the medina which is, in terms of size, easily the largest we have been in so far.
