El Badi Palace

This palace was built by the Saadian sultan Ahmad al-Mansour in 1578. It was constructed on the occasion of Moroccan victory over the Portuguese at the Battle of the Three Kings in the town of Ksar el-Kabeer near Tangier. This palace lost its glory after it was looted and stripped of the marble and building material after the fall of the Saadian Dynasty. Most of it was taken to Meknes by Moulay Ismail. Now the palace stands in ruins. A tiny little area has been renovated and turned into a museum. You can see stables, dungeons, four sunken gardens with huge pools, and summer pavilions here.
