About Bahia Palace

The Bahia Palace is a set of gardens built in the late 19th century. Its name means "brilliance" in Arabic. Similar to other buildings of that era, it is a marriage of Islamic culture and Moroccan style. It consists of a 2-acre garden with rooms opening onto courtyards. The palace was built at the end of the 19th century by Si Moussa, Grand Vizier of the Sultan, for his personal use. At this palace, a vast courtyard decorated with a central basin is surrounded by rooms intended for his concubines. The palace is built by expert craftsmen from Fez.
