(the incomparable palace) consists of the
remnants of a glorious palace built by the Saadian king Ahmad
al-Mansur in 1578. The original building is thought to have had 360
rooms, a courtyard and a pool, decorated with Italian marbles and
large amounts of Sudanese gold. It also has a small, underground
jail where the king kept his prisoners. Unfortunately, the original
palace was torn apart by the Alaouite Sultan Mawlay Ismail. The
design of the palace is influenced by Granada's Alhambra.
