Villa Katherine (circa 1900) is reportedly patterned after the Villa ben Abhen in Morocco. After taking in the fabulous exotic architecture (reminiscent of the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain), the strongest impression of the museum is its relative lack of authentic Middle Eastern furnishings.

We loved going in Villa Kathrine, the courtyard with the pool was our favorite room. So glad it was restored.
