Madrasa El Bachia

Madrasa El Bachia was built in 1752 during the reign of the Husainid Abu l-Hasan Ali I. It was dedicated to the Hanafi education.[1]
In the 1980s, and with the help of the ministry of Vocational Training and Employment, the madrasa was re-established once more as a training center.[1]
The madrasa had 13 rooms for students, a prayer room and a library.[1] It has also a public fountain close to the entrance, added later for the visitors.
The building showcases the classical architecture of a madrasa: the courtyard gives access to the rooms through porticos surrounding three sides while the fourth gave access to the prayer room and the library.
