- Go to the Bahia Palace to see intricate tile work
Founded in 1062, it’s the 2nd oldest of Morocco’s imperial cities, and among its finest attractions is the Koutoubia, one of the largest and most beautiful mosques of the western Muslim world. Marvel at the 225-foot minaret and masterful architecture that evokes the Giralda of Seville.
See the 19th-century Bahia Palace, built in 7 years by 1,000 craftsmen from Fez. Intended to be the greatest example of Moroccan and Islamic architecture in the world, a haphazard arrangement of secret apartments open onto the inner courtyards, set in the center of a 2-acre garden.
The only sections open to the public are the apartments of the Sultan’s favorite concubine, the Council Chamber, where you can admire the tiled walls and illuminated cedarwood ceiling, and the Central Courtyard, paved with marble, intricate zellij tiles, and ornate fountains.
Next, go to the Saâdian Tombs, dating back to the time of Sultan Ahmad al-Mansu, and admire the pure architectural lines and delicate decorations of cedar wood and stucco in the marble mausoleums of about 60 members of the Saadi Dynasty.
