Set over two acres in the middle of the Marrakech medina and features over 100 rooms, including a harem section located just off the sun-filled Court of Honor; today, the Bahia Palace is a must-see historical museum open to the public daily.

These tombs date back to the end of the sixteenth century designed by Ahmad al-Mansur and are located in a closed garden, which visitors can access through a small passageway.
