  • Like to carefully watch the wall of all kinds of tiles, not afraid of the destruction of time, still dazzling. Even the roof on the top of the head also is worth seeing, how are these totem collages pasted after all, the craft technique of Morocco ancient time is magnificent as expected. Each room in the Palace was carefully designed and sized according to the popularity of the sultan's concubine, and each concubine's room had its own atrium. The Palace has a reception hall, living area, garden, fountain, guest room, stable, Koran School, etc. There are more than 150 rooms with sculptures and paintings, only a few of which are open to the public.
  • This palace is really an epitome of the saying “Don’t judge the book by its cover”. The exterior of the palace was just average but when you go inside, that’s where the grandiose and extravagance meet! The explanation of its details was really stunning and worth to know. It’s highly recommended to have a tour guide inside so your mind is fed with interesting stuffs and not just your eyes. It’s a must see in Marrakech city!
