  • 70dh to for admission fee per adult. You will spend around 45-60 minutes inside. Lots of different types and styles of tiles and fun shapes! Cool doors and arches all over the palace. Sad part is that the wall are quite dirty some sort of yellowish color that kinda ruins the photos... There in one part where is the cool garden, probably the coolest area of the whole palace, is very well maintained and lots of natural light. Worth the visit and good to get out of the crowds and heat!
  • Block off at least an hour (more is better). You will spend time looking at the architecture, going from room to room, and finding your way out. It is like an escape room without the riddles. After a while the rooms seem to repeat with slight differences. Look for the blue arrows with the visitation directions.
