The Bahia Palace

My experience 

It was the first time I visited The Bahia Palace while my journey in Marrakech. I was amazed by the beauty of this Palace. As photographer I was totally inspired by all colors that we find during our visit, on the side of gardens they amazed me and its architecture as well. I noticed lot of admiration in eye’s visitors that I completely understand it such it is a beautiful place. I was amazed during my visit, I loved taking photographs of this place and, so, I had an inspired moment filled in The Palace Bahia.

History

Between 1866 and 1867 Vizir Si Mussa a great Vizir of Sultan Hassan 1st of Morocco started building the northern part of this Palace of 8000 hectare as a Riad, which was the biggest one at that time. After his death, his son Ahmed Ben Mussa kept building the Palace by tackling the southern part of the Palace named Bahia, a name coming from his favorite mistress.

Bahia means “the beauty, the brilliant”.

Gardens of the Bahia Palace

Gardens are particularly marvellous with their orange trees and fountains spread in the corners. They are peaceful place where you could stay sat down for hours such it gives you this impression to be in a little peace of heaven, as they wanted to have many years ago. For them gardens are a strong symbol in Muslim culture, which is a representation of heaven for humans. Indeed, garden is a symbolic representation of a sacred world while fountain represents water that allows giving a balance between colors and smell through fruits that are produced from trees in those gardens. That is what we discover through our visit in the Palace of Bahia and its multiple gardens all around.

Why I recommend it? 

This is a superb place in which it needs to linger a long time before continuing your visit of interest centres in Marrakesh. Take your time to discover the Bahia Palace.
