El Badi Palace This elaborate 360-room, 16th-century palace featured ornately decorated rooms in its day, complete with gold, ivory, and marble. Unfortunately thieves emptied the rooms of their valuables after Meknes became the capital city in the late 1600s. The ruins are, however, well worthy of exploration.
