Although it is not a place so well-known, if you succeed to enter in this building you’ll be fascinating by it’s architecture and details. You need a licensed guide to enter here, but...you can try to “negociate” with the guards over there to let you...More

If you are in the area it is a must see. If you have been to Fes or other locations for great historic buildings you will be moderately impressed

The building is open to public at it is being used for special occasions and events. The interior courtyard is beautifully designed in the typical Moorish design and detailed stucco work. Definitely worth a stop during a visit to Casablanca.

The Mahkana du Pacha is worth a short visit if you can gain access. The interior is attractive but there is no written explanation of what you are seeing or the building’s historical significance.

We were outside the palace, it looked nice though we couldn’t get access to it. Suming up it was worth walking around the Habous but if you are only interested in the palace you are going to get disappointed

My wife and I were not allowed to visit without an official guide. Also, no guides were around the place to book a tour. Very disappointing knowing that it is located far away (2.5 km) from the city center.
