Welcome Respite

Get away from the crowds and enjoy some nice mosaics and interior spaces. Good lord, it's just a dollar.

Truly mesmerizing architecture. Wonderful, peaceful courtyard. Impressive collections. If you want to see just one building that exemplifies Moroccan architecture, tile work, etc., this is the one.

Lovely to see, the architectural elements from the mosaics to the fountains are just magnificent. Don't miss this while in Marrakech; it is also a nice respite from the crowds.

After spending time in the Medina getting jostled by Moroccans and other tourist attractions with 100 mobile phone cameras in your place it's time to go here for a very tranquil, rewarding and intriguing visit.

This hidden gem is on a side street close to the Bahia Palace. It is well worth making the short detour to visit this collection of arts and crafts in another beautiful building.
