Just 10 Dirhams for entry. The terrace has good views with stork nests scattered throughout within photographing distance. The main courtyard is nice for a quick stroll. Not the most amazing thing in Marrakech but it's near all the big sites and worth popping in.

Worth a visit as part of a series of historical things - including the museum/gallery of photos from Marrakech of old. Take your time and enjoy the atmosphere. We went on the last day and thought it gave some useful context to the visit -...More

Impressive and not crowded. Don't miss the underground exhibition. We wish we could spend more time there. We arrived one hour before the 5pm closing. they kicked us out at 4:30. Otherwise i would give rating 5.

Absolutely beautiful and a cool place to visit in the Marrakech heat. 10Dhs for entrance is an amazing bargain for such a beautiful location.

An enjoyable place to amble around and marvel at how beautiful it must have been, now a romantic ruin! We enjoyed seeing the storks nests an the views over the town. There is an extra charge to see the impressively carved Minbar de la Koutoubia,...More

We really enjoyed our visit to El Badi, still beautiful even though a ruin. Loved to see the storks nesting, and one of only a few places in Marrakech that had information boards around the site, and a video to show what the site would...More

A large abandoned palace in ruins which is well worth the bargain entrance fee. A massive court yard with water trees and places to capture reflections. A terrace to view the city and palace. A prison underground with passage ways and the beautiful blue green...More

The fee is 20 Dirham, approx. 2 euro. Ask for the ticket. or else you will be supporting the guy's family. ;-)
