I love places like this! This palace was built in the 1500s and is now basically a well preserved ruin. Many ruins are either gated off or completely missing, not this place! You're free to explore nearly every crevice of the palace. You can follow the paths the king would have followed, or you can go to the slave quarters and snoop around. The only place sealed off are some parts of the dungeon. You can still look in but some parts you can't physically go. After this, I would highly recommend going to Bahia palace to see where they took all the decorations.
Some parts are very neat a true history of how it's changed. I feel they need to just go into perseverance mode with this vs still hosting large activities.
Once a monumental palace and venue for festivals and grand parties. Unfortunately all that is left now is the decaying ruins of what once would have been a magnificent place. There are plenty of signs with information detailing the history of the palace and the history that goes with it. I'm not a fan of reading lots of information but we got 2 hours of interesting walks and views when we visited. For the price, it is well worth it.
Very inexpensive to get in and a great find. We really enjoyed visiting the palace as a family and both our 10 and 5 year olds were intrigued by its history. Our favourite bit was the movie at the end which showed how the palace would have once looked in its grandeur. A must go for any history lover.
This was a fun place to visit for an hour. The terrace has a nice breeze to it. The KITTENS are CUTE! It is not as touristy (tour groups) as the other palaces.

Good value and nice garden/ruins visit. Storks nesting may be available as a welcome extra. The minbar is extra and probably not worth it unless you are a wood carving specialist. Do not miss the little rooms by the guesthouses, lots of interesting things in here.
Interesting, but a lot of the descriptions and signs are in French only. I feel like I would have got more out of my visit if my French was better or there were more translations. Still worth visiting, it's just a shame we didn't understand everything.
Our family of four spent a couple of hours here. Don't miss the view from the terrace, take time to notice the storks on top of the wall, and stroll through both underground caves (one right near the entrance and the other near the crumbled rock ruins). There is a short video in a cool, covered room opposite the entrance that is worth a few minutes on a hot day.
A true oasis and escape from the bustling and sometimes stressful city. Absolutely beautiful. The luxury of it all must have been amazing when it was in use. Look for the storks on the roofs and walls!
Nice place to see some history. Watch the movie inside the palace to understand how it historically looked. It is definitely not necessary to visit the mosque inside the palace. Skip it and safe the money even though it is 1 euro. The view from the tower is great. You can see the entire place and the area around the city.
Very nice castle with great history. Place lacks of maintenance and renovation budget which is a shame as it can be absolutely magic and beaitiful ! Furniture of the old time is missing and will make the place very nice. Go there anyway to understand better what is a castle in Morocco.
There's something beautiful about this place. And it has an awesome view of the High Atlas mountains from the terrace. Ticket 10dh
It's a nice place and quite large, but unfortunately most of it is destroyed. The centre with the pool is quite nice and you can picture how things used to look, but otherwise, it's just ruins of flat rock everywhere. The extra to see the mosque is also not worth it, it's just a tiny room with a wooden staircase. Would skip this and just walk around ruins if you're going to go. It is a shame though, with a bit more resources dedicated to its restoration, it could become a real treasure for Marrakech with interesting history to read about.
Great ruins with detailed insight of how life was back in 1578. There could be more information about the grounds but what’s provided can give tou a great idea of its history. As all other monuments, I would recommend getting there really early before it is flooded with tourists.
Beautiful Palace, wonderful architecture unlike any in my country of England. The gardens are beautiful and the designs on all the surfaces are encapsulating. This place is a true gem and I would recommend. I'd also recommend bringing water with you :).
