Dar El-Badii, the palace of the incomparable was built between 1578 and 1603 by Yacoub El Mansour, sovereign Almohade. The richest raw materials, some from India, were chosen for its construction: gold, onyx, marble from Italy ... The Andalusian influence in the plans of the palace is indisputable and suggests that the architect, although unknown, should be from Granada. An almost absolute symmetry prevailed in the plan of this magnificent house built entirely on solid brick vaults. The interior gardens called gardens of desire, of which there remains today a huge esplanade dug ponds and planted with orange trees, are surrounded by the remains of the palace and high walls on which nest a multitude of storks.
