Head to the Bahia Palace by way of the Jewish Quarter, a 16th century refuge for Jews fleeing Spain. See the faded carvings of the Star of David above the front doors, the beautiful balconies and travel the narrow winding streets, evidence of this once vibrant community. Admire the beautiful blue and white tile work of the Lazama Synagogue.
Reach the Bahia Palace, a masterpiece of Moorish architecture. Stroll around the beautiful gardens and fountain. Appreciate the gilded and inlaid woodwork ceilings, zellige (terra cotta tilework), and stained-glass windows of these talented craftsmen of the 19th century. Get a closer look into the lives and the secrets of the harem. See the beauty of the marquetry and painted ceilings.

Explore numerous artifacts, belonging to the Berbers of the Sahara, housed in this former traditional Moroccan house (Riad) in the heart of the medina. See statues, utensils and camel riding gear demonstrating a civilazation more developed than tribal depictions in movies, such as Lawrence of Arabia.

Sit in a traditional Moroccan setting with carpets and chandeliers, while you dine. Listen to live music played by musicians in traditional attire and playing traditional instruments. Let the atmosphere transport you back in time as you enjoy a complete meal from appetizer, main course, dessert and mint tea with Moroccan sweets. Continue your visit of Jemaa el-Fnaa Square.
