Explore the enchanting Dar Batha

Dar Batha is located on the Rue de la Musée, not far from the Bab Boujeloud, the ornate city gate that served as the main western entrance to Fes el Bali (the oldest walled part of Fez). The museum and grounds are open every day apart from 9 a.m. on Tuesday. At 5 p.m. The entrance fee is 10 dirhams (around $1 USD). The Andalusian-style gardens take over more than half of the palace grounds, offering a peaceful respite from the busy outdoor medina, and a chance to drink some tea and try some traditional sweets.

Dar Batha is a former royal palace located in the heart of Fez's medina. Converted into a museum in 1915, it now houses a fine collection of some 6,000 pieces ranging from traditional Moroccan tiles to carpets and astrolabes.

 

During the reign of Hassan I, Morocco's sultan from 1873 to 1894, Dar Batha was commissioned. Built in the Arab-Andalusian style, with a calm garden and fine decorations, it served as a place for the sultan to entertain guests, a function he maintained during the subsequent reign of Hassan I's son, Abdelaziz.
