Bahia Palace

Bahia Palace

In the late 1800s, the Bahia Palace was built at the pleasure of Ba-Ahmed, a former slave who rose to become the all-powerful Vizier to the Moroccan Sultan.  An admirer of fine things, Ba-Ahmed brought builders and artists from Fez to build the Palace and it remains quite spectacular with its Islamic architecture and beautiful Moorish gardens.  The palace has extensive quarters for Ba-Ahmed’s four wives and twenty-four concubines—suitably opulent digs for such a harem.
