If you’re going to visit a palace in Marrakesh, make it the Bahia Palace. Built in the late 19th century by grand visor Si Moussa, it was intended to be the greatest palace of the time and is certainly impressive.
The palace consists of a series of interconnected rooms and courtyards, with some truly stunning cedar wood carving and plaster detailing throughout. There is also plenty of greenery, with trees and plants filling many of the small courtyards and surrounding gardens – making a refreshing change from the dusty city streets.
While we were there, there was also a small photo exhibition running about environmental projects around the world, which was very interesting and inspiring.
