“Lovely gallery with a stunning view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

This small gallery is a labour of love. We really enjoyed looking at the photographs and the view from the roof terrace is stunning. Postcards and prints are available to purchase. Definitely worth a look.

“Good lunch stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Small gallery but with some interesting photographs. Friendly staff and under 16's are free (otherwise it would have felt quite expensive for such a small collection). We went because the owners of our Riad recommended the roof top terrace. We ended up having lunch there which was very nice and offered quite views of the Medina and Atlas Mountains

“Good original images”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Small area, you will like the historical images if you are there, but you'll not be missing out if you can't make it. Friendly staff there.

“Fascinating photos and great roof terrace for lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

The photos was very interesting, showing Morocco since the early 1900s. But the best bit was the panoramic roof terrace, views right over marrakech over to the Atlas mountains.
