Marrakech: Palace Bahia

Marrakech: Palace Bahia

Palace Bahia was on the "must see list" that Palais Namaskar provided us with so we HAD to go. The word "bahia" means "brilliance" and I think this is such a perfect description of the palace. It was built in the nineteenth century and was constructed by a father and a son, Si Moussa and Ba Amed. While the original purpose of this palace was to serve the personal uses of the sultan, it is being used by the Moroccan government today as a formal venue for receiving special guests. I was glad to hear that the palace found a different purpose as well as being a tourist attraction.

When we left Palace Bahia, or rather, when we were kicked out (we were in there for ages until the closing time because we got lost), we found a little spice/oil shop. I was blinded by how colourful everything was when we went into have a look. The owner of the shop soon approached us and performed his what sounded like a very well rehearsed speech on how different oils and spices were made. I actually didn't pay much attention (maybe I should have) but the only thing I remember hearing about is goats climbing on trees. That probably sounds really weird out of context but you can see a photo right next to Modupe when she's having a go at making some argan oil. The owner promised me that it wasn't photoshopped!
