This is a nice palace not far from the Blue Gate. Besides a beautiful andalusian garden, it features a little musuem where it's possible to see arabic and berber tools and garments. Worth a visit if, like us, you are with a guide who can...More

I remember really enjoying this museum some years ago and while the building itself and the gardens that provide the museum's setting remain lovely, the items in the museum are not well displayed or labelled and look a little jaded.

You will not be disappointed when visiting this once palace, now museum. The artifacts are very interesting, but I was mezmorized with the gardens and architecture as well. Definitely worth a visit.

The building is beautiful. It’s very fresh and quiet with the garden in the middle. I was more interested with the architecture than the exhibit. Definitely still worth a visit if you want to get out from the bustle of the Médina.

We ventured out of the Medina and discovered a hive of Military/Police activity. Not sure what was going on, but it was a little disconcerting. We didn't venture too much further, but did come across the Batha Museum and decided to have a look around....More
