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.
  • 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!
