Currently it is quite neglected but once the restoration will have been finished it will be a magnificent place. We loved the storks on the walls and th view from the terrace.

This palace must have been glorious. The remains of the sunken gardens are still there. And the ruins are extant enough to give you a sense of the grandeur. Almost none of the decorative tales/marble remains though. There is a short video that runs continuously showing an architects model of how it was. Not the least interesting was the storks... More

I really enjoyed El Badi Palace. It's a nice escape from the hustle and bustle of the street. It's a fairly large palace, but most of that area is the central open area. This gives the location a somewhat serene feeling as you walk around. We watched a video that showed what historians think the palace originally looked like. The... More

El Badi Palace is a vast palace complex which is currently a ruin. While it lacks the splendor of Bahia Palace its grounds are fun to walk around the explore. Definitely worth visiting, and very cheap at only 10 Dh

We are asked to do the guided tour but did not have time, so we just went around, reading the signs. It is a beautiful place, and there are lots of storks on the walls... unusual!

This was our first visit to El Badii Palace in the Medina. There is a small charge to enter but it is worth it. Although most of the palace is now a ruin you really get a sense of the scale of the original site and it is well worth the visit. Look our for the numerous stork nests on... More

El Badi Palace was one of my favourite sites in Marrakech, and the entry fee's next to nothing. The nesting storks are a bonus!

Cheap to get in and worthwhile to visit. My daughter was interested in the history but I was interested in the storks. We wondered around for an hour or so. There was a video which looked very interesting, explaining the history of the palace, but unfortunately my French isn't good enough to have understood it fully. For a Euro, it's... More
