Dar Batha


Dar Batḥa (Arabic: دار البطحاء‎, pronounced Bat-ḥaa), or Qasr al-Batḥa (Arabic: قصر البطحاء‎), is a former royal palace in the city of Fez, Morocco. The palace was commissioned by the Alaouite Sultan Hassan I in the late 19th century and finished under his successor Abdelaziz. It was converted into a museum of historical arts and crafts in 1915 with a collection that now comprises over 6,500 objects. The palace is located near Bab Bou Jeloud at the western edge of Fes el-Bali, the old medina quarter of the city, and close to Fes el-Jdid, the new medina quarter.

Another historic palace, the Dar al-Beida (Arabic: الدار البيضاء‎), was originally part of the same complex but was split off for other official uses in the 20th century and remains an official residence today, inaccessible to the public.
