Such a palace were visited by almost all tourist need to be cleaned and restored. Is not la Medina, clean please at least inside.
The palace is situated in the south of the Medina and is approached by a long garden driveway.Once inside you are directed by arrows on the wall which take you through a succession of rooms and courtyards.The decoration in the rooms with the tiling,carved wooden doors and ornate ceilings gives you a good idea of Moorish architecture.Very little information on...

We weren't blown away by Bahia Palace, but for a minimal 10dH entry fee it was a nice way to spend a leisurely hour. On our visit in late November the place was almost deserted as well. We enjoyed admiring the traditional architecture - the intricate detailing of the ceilings, cornices and tiling etc. There is no signage or information... More
The roofs were the most interesting part of all. It is a pleasant place to visit, it's only 1€ more or less, so if you are around it's half an hour in the shade!
The beautiful home is so insignificant from the outside and amazingly beautiful on the inside. Not externally flamboyant to distress the less fortunate people who pass by but internally, luxurious, airy, peaceful tranquillity that displays the success of the owner. All there but not in your face!
This is a beautiful place to visit if you don't have much time to spend elsewhere - it is a quick and nice walk. Although there is not much to see, if you want to get an idea of what real moroccan pottery and architecture is then you should go. It was pleasant to walk around in november without getting... More
I had seen the Bahia Palace on a travel app and I have to admit, the pictures on the app promised far more than the reality delivered. Yes I totally agree, for 10 dirham it's a must whilst you're in Marrakech and yes, the architecture is amazing. Some of the tiling and wooden ceilings are absolutely beautiful and exquisite. All...

I loved the architecture, the painted wood ceilings, seemingly endless rooms and courtyard gardens. Okay - so its nineteenth century, but still wonderful. If you love Moorish architecture, you'll love this.
Like many of the sites in Marrakech it was ok but not of any great note. We went in November when the weather was a perfect temperature but in the height of the summer I would imagine it to be unbearable as its very exposed.
Whilst it did have some amazing architecture and examples of amazing tiling, it did seem to have been a bit neglected in places and could do with some furniture fitting its time and use. Many of the rooms are identical......however for 10 DRH its not an expensive way to spend half an hour.
