El badi palace is a ruin and there is not so much things left today but it has a more unique architecture than Bahia palace and it is only 10mrd to visit. I think it is worth to come and see a palace from 16th century in a Moroccan style. Also the small art museum inside the palace had an... More

complete waste of time, nothing to see at all, hardly worth the 10dh entrance fee, much better places to visit in Marrakesh

This historical palace , of which there are great legends , is well worth a visit although much is now in ruins . Walk among the submerged walls or see the large man made pools in the centre .

enjoyed our visit to El Badhi palace and only 10 dirhams entry fee. If you are interested in the history of the old city then you need to gust the ruins just to gave a look around. Unfortunately we went on a very hot day and there was no shade from the sun so we didn't spend as much time... More

Essentially this 'attraction' comprises a high walled compound enclosing a multi level floor slab and a stagnant pond in the middle. In one corner there is an observation tower, so that you can get a different view of the same thing. I would suggest it could be put to better use as a car park!

We went in the blazing sun in July 2015 and quickly took up the offer of the guide to take us around for MAD 200. (We were doing a whirlwind Marrakesh tour by taxi taking in all the sights). The guide was quite fluent in English and took us around to the dungeons, around the gardens and of course to... More

Very cheap - only 10MD to visit the palace which would have been incredible in its original state. Loved seeing the stalks and their crazy nests which you can see on the place walls. A tranquil place to visit and you can get amazing views of the city from the palace terrace.

It's some ruins that aren't that old....not even worth the 10 entrance to go in. Just see Behai - much better.

Great visit but make sure you take your sunscreen and hat and sunglasses. The art museum inside the palace has interesting exhibitions too. Plan to visit Bahia palace and Badii palace together for they are only 10-15 minutes walk away at most.
