Bahia Palace

While on independent travel in Marrakech, we went to the Bahia Palace. Intended to be the greatest palaces of it's time, it is an excellent example of the Islamic and Moroccan style. It was built in the late 19th century by Si Moussa, the grand vizier of the sultan. Two courtyards surrounded by bedrooms create the harem, with a lush, small one for his four wives, and a larger one to house his countless concubines.
