I enjoyed the Palace, it was interesting and I would def. schedule some time to do this visit. We were 4 and everyone enjoyed the visit.

We stopped here to take a look around after visiting Bahia Palace, partly because it was so cheap (10 dirhams to enter) and was on our way back to the souks. We walked around for about 45 minutes and took some cool pictures. You can also go up to the terrace and get a pretty nice view of the rooftops, which was a nice surprise. The palace is near a lot of other attractions, such as the Kasbah Mosque and the Saadian Tombs, so I'd say stop by just to see it if you're in the area.

We hired a guide and enjoyed his explanation of the history. There are explanational plaques around, so you could skip the guide. The sultan had 365 wives, a mosque, places for the diplomats, fruit orchards and baths on these enormous palatial grounds. It is interesting to see the roosting storks. When another invading empire conquered the area, they carted off most of the gems. There isn't much tile work left. I would skip the room with the mosque chair. It has a few drawings/photos of the restoration
process, but didn't seem worth the extra fee.
Fuimos con una guía. Nos gustó la extra información sobre el lugar. Es un palacio enorme donde el sultán tenía 365 esposas, baños, piscinas, casas para embajadores y una prisión. Está en ruinas porque invasores habían quitado todo lo de valor. No vale la pena pagar extra para ver la silla de mezquita.

The size is overwhelming; one can only imagine what it must have been like to visitors when it was in use. Certainly would have told the peons they were visiting the boss. I always like ruins and these were no exceptioon; lots of nice photo ops.
