Create an itinerary including El Badi Palace
Erected in the 16th century, El Badi Palace was crafted from some of the most expensive materials of the period. The sultan Ahmad al-Mansur ordered the palace's construction in gold and onyx, with marble colonnades and crystal embellishments. Sadly, one of the sultan's successors looted the palace, leaving behind a brick skeleton that today provides a home for a population of storks. The scale, the story, and the storks all make this an important and evocative monument to explore.

  • One of the archeological monuments of Marrakech, yet, not the most beautiful one.
  • Gorgeous place! It is an affordable, clean and beautiful place. Good place to bring kids along to as well as there is plenty of places to explore and roam around in. Very picturesque and full of history!!
  • Beautiful palace with the lake and plantation in the middle. Love climbing the rocks and bridges at some point, was a real adventure! There are also very informative, providing videos and notes about the place. Great experience!
  • Very very hot. Visit first thing in the morning, bring your own water (no one sells it there) but very impressive and some great videos showing you what it used to look like. Other top tip is many people will be around the place telling you it's closed. It's probably not closed they want you to go to their shop.
  • It's a interesting piece of history. At the moment it's a ruin and they are renovating it. But don't let that fool you, it's definitely stil worth a visit. And it is interesting to see in what shape ruins are in when they are rediscovered.
