I was a bit lazy and not done much research on this palace before visiting it. It is well worth spending a couple of hours here and imagining just how splendid the place was in its prime! The main 'square' was breathtaking and it is easy to see how magnificent it must have been. The renovations have been skillfully done... More

We enjoyed the visit to these ruins. Very pleasant way to spend a few hours. Good computer generated film showing how it would have looked before they spent 10 years stripping out the marble and ornate fittings.

We visited this on the same day as the tombs on our own walking tour! A great day in the sunshine working the map! It is worth the visit to appreciate what they had - we were too late in the day to see the Bab Berma despite paying the extra so worth asking what time it closes at point... More

One of our favorite visits, we liked this better than the Bahia palace. Basically ruins left behind when it was stripped for other buildings it has been having what appears to be a thoughtful but as of yet incomplete restoration of its gardens and pools, while leaving the remaining ruins intact. Later part of it was used as an underground... More

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.
