This palace in the heart of the medina, but just inside the gate is the most peaceful garden! It's hard to appreciate from the photos, but the peaceful quiet of this spot was SUCH a welcome respite from the chaos all around. I really took my time strolling through this area to give my mind some rest.

Tourists can't go inside the current royal palace in Marrakech, but this one is nearby and sometimes houses parts of the royal family.

Tile, carvings, paintings, gardens... There was so much to explore!

I didn't even know until I read later that "Bahia" means "beautiful" or "brilliant." But what a fitting name, indeed! If you're planning a trip to Marrakech, definitely put it on your can't-miss list!
