Bou Inania School  is a Koranic school, located in the centre of the Medina of Meknes. It was built by the Marinid Sultan Abu El Hassan and completed by his son Abu Inan (1350-1358) who gave his name to the edifice. Its decoration, made of stucco and wood calligraphy, is one of the most refined in Morocco. It is the ideal place to admire one of the most beautiful views of the city above the medina. Bou Inania School is an elegant rectangular building. Its door is sheltered by an awning topped by a dome giving access to a vestibule on which the courtyard opens.

The walls of this courtyard lined with zelliges, inscriptions, carved plasters, and magnificent carvings on cedar wood provide a wonderful example of Moorish decoration. Student rooms are based on the first floor.

The whole place is especially remarkable thanks to its mosaic decoration, faience enamelled plaster and carved wood.
