About 10 years ago I stayed in the Per Palace hotel in Istanbul which had its heyday in the 19th and early 20th century before decaying (it has now been turned into a world class 5☆ hotel). The Glaoui palace is inhabited by the descendents...More

Before we went, we knew that this was a palace in ruin. We decided to go after all, because we thought that it could be interesting to see some site with "melancholy". Maybe, we have seen too much Moroccan beauty, and wanted to see what...More

While not huge like the glorious, well-kept up Rabat Royal Palace, this slightly run down place is still worth the trip, if only to see the wonderful tiles. It is fairly near other sights and won't take you more than an hour, so go if...More
