The El Badi Palace took 15 years to build and was finally completed around 1593. It boasts of a lavish display of some of the best craftsmanship of that era. Originally, the structure is thought to have consisted of 360 rooms, a courtyard, and a central pool. Walk through the several large pavilions on the site, believed to have been used as summer houses. The largest pavilion in the palace is called as Koubba el Khamsiniya, that translates to "The Fifty Pavilion", named for its area of 50 cubits or for the 50 columns that it once contained. The palace also is home to several stables and dungeons.
This ancient palace lies within the city limits. You could take a taxi from the city center that would take you through Rue Ouadi Naffis and Rue Oum Errabia to Avenue Khalid Ibn El Oualid. Take the Avenue Hommane Al Fatouaki to Rue de Berrima and continue towards the palace.
