We spent an hour here with our three children this morning and enjoyed it immensely. Stunning architecture, wonderful smell of the orange trees and plenty of places for the kids to explore and climb. Very cheap entry price also. Would recommend.

Little is left to entertain or interest the visitors in this open empty palace ground. Only go if you have time to kill. Thankfully the majestic storks build nests and provide a focus for the camera.

Spent a long time here, exploring all of the area. It is fascinating and if you close your eyes it is like being transported back in time. the smell of the gardens is so delightful.

This clean well signed palace with somexruins and some walls and buildings standing was much better than a few years ago and excellent value at ten dirhams . Do visit the terrace and enjoy the stork nests

With underground corridors and ponds it is an interesting museum but there is not much information around. You have to read about the place before you visit.

What was once a vast palace complex was stripped bare when the monarch died and a new family came to power. It is worth wondering around these ruins, walking through the underground passages, watching the storks nest on high, seeing the intricate woodwork on the minaret, and watching the short film detailing what the place would have been like.

This site is the ruins of an old palace. You can watch a video to get a sense of what it was like. There is also an old "pulpit" that you pay a little extra to see, but it is special.

Strange place, the impressive walls give an impression of what was once here but the most of the buildings and all the decoration have been striped out and taken away. There are old photo's showing the place more in tact. The tunnels under the palace that the slaves and workers used to move around the Palace are in tact and... More
