It is an interesting and spacious place to visit. You need a lot of imagination to visualise how the place looked like in former times.

The palace is like something from the movies - a beautiful, indulgent building, marking the times of magic, excess and luxury. Although mainly ruins, the aspect when you walk through the archway, and up on the terrace, is truly remarkable, and the whole place lends itself to the whimsical nature of Marrakech.

Amazing tile and woodwork. After 30 minutes, it's just the same thing over and over. I need 14 more characters.

Interesting ruins! Not expensive at all to get in. Only 10 dh. There is not much to see but if you like using your imagination and historical places then it's worth it!

We visited the El Badi Palace in the afternoon about 4.30. The mistake was that it closed at 5.30 prompt. It is a ruin but still fascinating. It has an instructive video (in French) we could have stayed for ages exploring. It really is very large and well worth the 20DH entry. There is a further charge of 20DH to... More

Really just ruins, not much to see except for the film showing how it was. Waste of time when there is so much more to see on Marrakech.

The palace is currently in ruin, but there is a project to rebuild as far as i've been told. The entrance fee is unexpensive (only 10dh). It is still nice to walk about the ruin, and see the trees and pools of water, however if you go there in a very hot day there isn't any shade for you to... More

We visited here as part of our day out and for 10 dirham per person you get a lovely insight into the past. We enjoyed our walk taking in the sights both above and below ground. We took in all the orange trees sunk in at a lower level and climbed the tower to get a panoramic view including the... More
