Badii Palace and minbar

Edit This
This was once known as 'the incomparable palace' and, although it is now a ruin, it certainly was something very special. It now seems to have a role as the stork centre for Marrakesh as a number were to be seen on the walls in November - and none anywhere else!

One feature that adds a whole 10  dirhams [less than €1!] to the cost is the 12th century minbar from the Koutoubia mosque. Its a sort of pulpit staircase with fabulous decorations in rare woods and ivory.

There is far more walking involved in seeing the whole palace than you would initially think
