The Bahia Palace, within the walls of the kasbah, was built-in the late 19th century. Meaning “brilliance”, it was intended to be the greatest palace of its time. It was designed to infuse the Islamic and Moroccan architectural styles. Attention to the privacy of the palace was employed during the architectural construction which features multiple doors preventing passers-by from seeing the interior of the palace. The construction took seven years to complete and the palace is set in a two-acre garden with rooms opening onto courtyards.
