“Well worth the entry fee.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Normally 10 dirhams entry but we got in free as it was world heritage day. Amazing mosaics, ceilings, tiles and stucco work. We had a guide book which was useful as there were few signs in English. To do it justice you need a official guide.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

We did this attraction as part of a tour and had a really good local guide. The palace itself is interesting, particularly the blend of styles which are the new Moorish style and I particularly liked the cedar ceilings which had a lot of intricate work completed in every room. Definitely worthy of a look if you ate in the city.

“interesting place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Interesting place if you obviously like history. I think its important to have a good tour guide with you as it definitely made all the difference for us. I had my twelve year old with me who usually finds this kind of thing boring but she too liked it.

“Just try to imagine it alive... ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

The tickets cost only 1? and it's also peaceful place after the notice of moroccan people and roads. A nice garden is leading you inside of the palace. Unfortunately no sing in English so if you want informations find a guide, otherwise just look around that morrokean architecture and try to imagine how was the living days of the palace! Although the Palace could be better reserved.
