No more a palace but a ruin now. Visited for its historic significance. However, will still recommend a visit. Once you enter, you will surely realize that this was once a majestic structure. There is a basement which we were informed by our guide was...More

Another break from the bustling medina spent in the calm of the beautiful ruins of the Palais Badi. Although arguably less to see than the still in tact Bahia palace, the ruins of Badi are without a doubt more majestic and it doesn't take much...More

This palace is undergoing a lot of work at the moment so looks messy.. however you can imagine it in all its glory. It is very deceptively big and holds a big expanse of pools and pits interspersed with rocks and gardens with trees. The...More
