Dar Si Said, Marrakesh Reviews
Really beautiful architecture. Lacks descriptions and historic explanation, that you will probably only get if you accept a guided tour, which we did not. But it is definitely a visit worth. Be aware that the street leading to the entrance can seem quite hidden away and easy to miss if you walk passed on the main street :)
This is a pleasant and interesting building, quite close to Bahia Palace, so worth paying a visit here if you are taking in the palaces in this district. It's only about 1 euro to get in, not an awful lot to see, but the mosaics are very impressive. It's not easy to find, but it does provide a pleasant, calm and relaxing way to unwind from the frenetic souks.
Amazing, the architect, atmosphere, mosaic patterns... we went there around noon which was the best time for filming and photography (less crowded by lunch time), otherwise, we couldn't be able to get some nice shots with all the tourists around.
Small palace, very pretty however I was looking for the museum of Moroccan art collection which is housed in the building. This was closed for restoration but they didn't tell me this before I went in!
Beautiful museum in the heart of the medina. Worth the visit
