It was interesting view of a former grand palace. Not a lot to see but still beautiful. Just don't expect too much. It would take you less than hour to see the place.

Although this palace is all ruins it is still attractive. Would recommend going early in the morning or later in the afternoon as most of it is outdoors so it can get very hot. Lovely view from the terrace.

Fascinating to see how the rulers lived, although the buildings have mostly been destroyed - it is still a very beautiful place.

Please be aware that if you do not travel in a group, the entry price for foreign adults is 70 Dirham (7$). The palace itself is huge and you can spend around an hour there walking around. It‘s just a bit sad that the renovations...More
