Palace of Glaoui

Ouarzazate, Morocco

Ouarzazate, Morocco

The Glaoui - the last ruling family of the south and a strong contender for control over Morocco during the time when the modern state was formed - had this palace built in Ouarzazate — but they never lived here.
Still it is quite impressive, especially with the help of government aided reconstruction in recent years. Some parts can be entered by visitors, like the visiting hall.
