The Bahia Palace was built relatively recently at the end of the 19th Century by Sidi Moussa a leading nobleman of his time who buit his fortune on the slave trade. Under the French protectorate it was used to house French army officers.
Spacious and airy the palace is decorated with mosaics and plaster work. There are a series of courtyard gardens surrounded by majestic state rooms. One the ‘must see’ sights of Marrakech.
The Bahia Palace is located not far South of the Jema al Fnaa square, our Riad Dar Habiba is nearby.
