Erected in the 16th century, El Badi Palace was crafted from some of the most expensive materials of the period. The sultan Ahmad al-Mansur ordered the palace's construction in gold and onyx, with marble colonnades and crystal embellishments. Sadly, one of the sultan's successors looted the palace, leaving behind a brick skeleton that today provides a home for a population of storks. The scale, the story, and the storks all make this an important and evocative monument to explore.

El Badi Palace Reviews

There is virtually nothing left - only the outer walls are still preserved. If it wasn't for the little film, you couldn't imagine anything under it. If you are there you can already visit it. especially since there is not so much to see in Marrakech
Easily spent an hour here enjoying palace ruins. Well sign posted and pleasant to walk around with not too many tourists. Go up to the terrace for the best view.
I loved so much the spaciousness and tranquility of this spot. Worth every coin of entrance admission. It is like another city inside Marrakech. Please explore a little bit as there are some hidden amazing photos all around. Great views of the city as well. A super actitivy i wouldn’t forgive if you miss.
