For anyone who has visited Marrakech, it’s likely that you’ve already realised that it is a little more chaotic than the Instagram masses would have you believe. So El Badi Palace was again not exactly what I was expecting, but it was lovely all the...More

If you don’t expect too much from visiting El Badi, you wouldn’t be disappointed. Entrance fee is cheap, about €2 per pax. The site is massive. If you don’t fancy seeing ruins, it’s a good spot for stork sighting. It also has a small art...More

Stunning palace ruins. Very interesting to look around. Not a lot of shade so hotter times of day best avoided.

This old palace is beautiful with quite a lot to explore. There are signs in several languages explaining the history of each area.
