This restored riad is gorgeous and shows exquisite examples of crafts from pottery to rugs to various leather work. The 2 courtyards are beautiful, this is an oasis in the middle of the busy Kasbah.

An interesting Palace, to discover old Moroccan architecture and lifestyle. It's from the 19th century and pretty luxurious.
