We visited the ruins of the palace back in May. The area is stunning, now in ruins you can really imagine the palace and the four gardens for the four wives! Climbing up to the top, the views from every angle are incredible - back across the city, the rooftops covered in stork nests, and far across to the snow... More

You can only imagine how magnificent this palace once was. It's mostly ruins now, but you can see the height, the enormity of the grounds, and some of the beautiful tile work that once existed. Be sure to go up the steps to get a view down to the city side and inside the walls of the palace. Don't forget... More

El Badi Palace is just what eyes look for: stunning decors of a rich civilisation. It shows all the richness and complexity of Moroccan traditionnal masons and other craftsmen.

although a bit further away from the centre of Medine, it is a place worth seeing. The ruins are impressive. There are some good descriptions of the points of interest.

Initially I was disappointed but as we explored it became more interesting and when we visited there were lots of storks nesting on the ruined walls and also some hawks. The area furthest away from the entrance has a small courtyard where there is some shady seating and whilst we visited there were various art installations which were interesting. Its... More

This is an old palace, but unfortunately it is almost completely destroyed and little remains of its original glory. Work is currently (April 2016) under way to reconstruct the buildings. You need to use some imagination to complement the actual site. As a history history, I loved it, even in its sad state. You can still see, if you look... More

Completely destroyed old palace with uninteresting museum - very cheap so wasn't too disappointed but did seem like a bit of a waste of time.
