El Badi Palace: Hours and Cost

In the southern area of the Marrakech Medina, El Badi Palace is within walking distance of other historical sites such as the Saadian Tombs and Bahia Palace. The ruins of El Badi Palace is a well known tourist attraction and includes a restored 12th-century minbar.

Cost: 10 dh (about $1)
Optional Cost: Pay an extra 10 dh to view the minbar. If you’re on an extremely tight budget you can skip this but if you can spare $1 then you might as well get the full ticket.
Hours: 9am – 4:45pm daily
Address: Ksibat Nhass, Marrakech, Morocco
Time: Between 1-2 hours depending how long you want to roam and take photos.

One of the first sites you’ll see at El Badi Palace are the white storks and their nests.
Orange trees now grow throughout the palace courtyard.
While in the underground dungeon, I came across an instagramer that had crossed the chained barrier so her flowing dress could be photographed in the alcoves.
Beautiful ruins outside the dungeon area.

Climb to roof to see the play of light and shadow on the beams.

If you’re in Marrakech, I recommend visiting the El Badi Palace.
