El Badi Palace

This historic ochre building was commission by Saadian sultan Ahmad al-Mansur in 1578 after the success against the Portuguese in the Battle of the Three Kings. El Badi Palace was funded by the compensation from the Portuguese and African gold and sugar cane revenue. Marble and other lavish materials for the palace were shipped from Italy, France, Spain and India. Although the palace was once an extravagant building, today it is ruins with just the foundation and outer walls left behind.
