Palais Glaoui

Palace in Medina

This 18th-century palace is as fascinating for its state of disrepair as it is for its architectural magnificence. It was built by a pasha from Marrakesh, and the family living here have been its guardians for 100 years. The main house is the height of Andalusian style and includes a well-preserved early-20th-century bathroom, still in use today. A harem leads onto a large kitchen with gigantic cooking pots. The biggest surprise is the modern-art gallery in a salon at the back.
