It's worth 10 dirhams to go in (1 euro). The base is really beautiful an charming. There is also some undergrounds that you can visit and a beautiful terrace you can see all the roofs of Marrakesh houses. There are also a lot of seagulls that make a lot of noise.

Good place to see the Storks and their nests but not really much to see and do, a little shade here and there and a very average photographic/art exhibition. I guess if you are interested in history then you would give it a higher rating but not a great place for me personally.

Visited here during a tour around the city. As it was so hot it was a shame the empty swimming pools were not full with water! The stalks to look at on the top of thee walls. A vast and beautiful place to visit

A must see in Marrakech. A stunning ruined palace with an labyrinth of underground rooms. Offers one of the best views of the city via an intact tower, and the palace walls are now home to nesting storks.

My husband and I visited this weekend. I found the palace amazing just seeing the sheer size! and the size of the swimming pool! The grounds are massive and its an oasis in the hustle and bustle of the city. The storks nesting on the walls are a must see! Very cheap to get in. Please be aware people will... More

Surprised ourselves by how long we stayed here. Loved exploring the ruins (there is more to it than you first realise) and was fun watching the numerous storks nesting on the walls. Great view from the terrace.

What a gorgeous place to spend an afternoon exploring. With every turn i saw something even more beautiful. It is a ruin and there is not much left but what is left is nonetheless worth seeing. Tip - Keep walking staight over to the far side on the left and you can explore more of the site. We saw a... More

Fascinating palace to explore with an interesting history - we thoroughly enjoyed visiting this palace which was just a stones throw from the Riad we stayed in in the old town. The large storks had built several nests on the top of the walls and were not phased at all by our presence. I would definitely recommend visiting when staying... More

Good experience having to get into a bit of history about the palace. At first it seemed unusual but later it developed into a place where film shooting for action scenes and romance should take place.

I've always been attracted to old stones and ruins, therefore I was eager to explore the insides of this splendid royal palace of the XVI century, of which only a few ruins remain nowadays. What strucks you most are the dimensions, but I found also quite interesting the excavation parts, where the structure of the guests quaters, the hammam, and... More
