This stylish, opulent palace is now a museum with tours of its stunning gardens and pavilions.
For a sensory overload, do visit the Bahia Palace, a virtual sea of mosaics and tiles. While some say the quality of worksmanship is not to the same standards as with other, mainly older, sites, the effect of the whole is pretty overwhelming.Well worth a visit, if only to comtemplate the extense of the harem quarters--another world indeed!
The guide books often recommend The Saadian Tombs and The Badii Palace. We found the Bahia Palace much more interesting. It has beautiful gardens and architecture. It really gives you an idea what it once was like living in an Marroccoan Palaca.
