I'm not exaggerating - the Ali Ben Youssef Medersa was unbelievable. Every surface, nook, and cranny was adorned with meticulous stucco, or wood detailing. See for yourself.
*please be patient during photo upload - I've specially uploaded higher-res images so you guys get extra detail! :)
This is a shot looking out of an upper level window - the detail extends all the way up to the roofs.
Beautiful views out the dormitory windows. The dorm rooms themselves are actually very modest rooms.
A hall within the Medersa.
