The Shrob ou shouf (
) fountain is not far from the Ben Youssef
Medrassa, built during Saadian sultan Ahmad al-Mansur's reign
(1578-1603). Its wooden crown is carved to look like honeycomb and
a green tiled roof shelters the structure. One of the fountain's
inscriptions invites passers-by to drink and look (
). In 1985, UNESCO recognised this Saadian
fountain as a cultural heritage site.
