“interesting architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

This place has very interesting architecture. Loved the mosaic floor tiles and decorated ceilings. Definitely worth a visit. There were a lot of stray (?) cats in the area.

“Well worth a visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

For only 10 DH each this is a lovely place to visit. Beautiful stone work and mosaics. It would have been nice to see some wall coverings and furnature but the ceilings were quite superb.

“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.
