Unfortunately currently under construction

Very nice old palace near to the Royal Palace with large and nice garden. Unfortunately it is currently under reconstruction and that effects your visit.

I think visiting the courtyards of this palace was one of my highlight of the entire trip to Morocco. If you like getting lost in space where you do not have to rub your shoulders with fellow travellers than you will certainly loose yourself in this place. It is spread across widely and you can see the structure according to... More

Get an entry to see the Minbar, made in the 12 century nd recently restored. The palace has been pillaged but you can still imagine the ancient splendor.

We really enjoyed our visit to the El Badi palace ruins. This was our first stop in terms of tourist sites in Marrakech and we visited on a lovely sunny morning in late December. The scope of the palace is large and you can envision what it must have been like when it was first built. If you visit Ben... More

A lot has been taken away from this palace and yet the decadent ruins that remain are quite impressive; it is not hard to imagine that it must have been breathtaking back in the 16th century, when the pools were working at full throttle and you could still admire the magnificent marble columns and the golden and onyx decorations. It... More

I was a bit scheptical about visiting the palace, but for 20 dirhams including the Muslim pulpit it was more than reasonable. The palace itself was completely expoliated by one of the former Kings of the country, meaning that now is a complete ruin. Most of the information is in French and Arabic, with really few things in English. If... More

Quite vast area. I could imagine what it was like with the Sultans and their slaves lived. Impressive buildings but the rest is left to the imagination.

An attractive palace which gives you an idea of how it must have been to live there some centuries ago. Quite a spacious area with good views from the 'roof' over both the palace and parts of Marrakesh. Not comparable with Bahia Palace (quite nearby) as this one misses (apart from some parts) the tiles and ornaments.
