El Badi Palace - Review
What takes a visitor by surprise about this 16th Century Saadian palace is how beautiful just the ruins of the fort are. A fascinating historical background and stunning views of Morocco have made this place a must-visit for every traveler.
A good example of Saadian opulence, it’s amazing to imagine how lavish this palace must have been in its glory days. A glimpse of the beautiful storks that have made this palace their home is a bonus gift for every tourist. The palace is now surrounded by enchanted orange trees and plush gardens.

El Badi Palace, Marrakesh Reviews
Once a monumental palace and venue for festivals and grand parties. Unfortunately all that is left now is the decaying ruins of what once would have been a magnificent place. There are plenty of signs with information detailing the history of the palace and the history that goes with it. I'm not a fan of reading lots of information but we got 2 hours of interesting walks and views when we visited. For the price, it is well worth it.
Some parts are very neat a true history of how it's changed. I feel they need to just go into perseverance mode with this vs still hosting large activities.
Nice place to see some history. Watch the movie inside the palace to understand how it historically looked. It is definitely not necessary to visit the mosque inside the palace. Skip it and safe the money even though it is 1 euro. The view from the tower is great. You can see the entire place and the area around the city.
Very inexpensive to get in and a great find. We really enjoyed visiting the palace as a family and both our 10 and 5 year olds were intrigued by its history. Our favourite bit was the movie at the end which showed how the palace would have once looked in its grandeur. A must go for any history lover.
This was a fun place to visit for an hour. The terrace has a nice breeze to it. The KITTENS are CUTE! It is not as touristy (tour groups) as the other palaces.
