Bahia Palace

The intricate designs, marble floors and ceramic mosaics all make Bahia Palace a masterpiece of Moroccan architecture. The palace was built in the late 19th century by the Grand Vizier of Marrakesh, Si Ahmed ben Musa, to exemplify Islamic and Moroccan architectural style. The palace is tucked away in a two acre garden with rooms that open up to inner courtyards. The palace took seven years to build as hundreds of craftsmen from Fez created wooden doorways, arches and ceilings and carved patterns in the stucco and zellij (mosaics made from chiseled geometric tiles). Today the palace is a major monument of the country’s heritage, culture and architecture.
