Bahia Palace, Medina, Marrakesh

Riad Zitoun El Jedid
Morocco 40000's insider take:

This 19th-century palace is so elaborate in its decoration it verges on kitsch. Built over seven years for Ba Ahmed, the son of the grand vizier Si Moussa, it includes row after row of apartments—that once housed Ahmed's harem—a trapezoidal garden, a huge tiled courtyard, and many hidden treasures, both in the form of antique objets d'art and the palace's convergence of Andalusian and Moorish architecture.

Open Mondays to Thursdays 8:45 to 11:45 am and 2:45 to 5:45 pm, Fridays 3 to 5:45 pm, and Saturdays and Sundays 8:45 to 11:30 am.
