Bahia Palace, Marrakech, Morocco


What can you expect:

The Bahia Palace is a 19th-century palace in Marrakesh, Morocco. The palace was built by Si Musa, grand vizier of Alaouite sultan Muhammad ibn Abd al-Rahman and then continued and expanded by his son Si Ba Ahmed ibn Musa, grand vizier of Sultan Moulay Abdelaziz between 1894 and 1900.

The Bahia Palace is today a must-see historical museum open to the public daily and has previously hosted events such as the Marrakech Biennale.

La Bahia (The Beautiful) is an 8000-sq-metre, floor-to-ceiling extravagance of intricate marquetry, plasterwork and zouak (painted wood), and certainly one of Marrakesh most eye-popping sights.
