" The storks" El Badi Palace Tip by belgianchocolate

El Badi Palace, Marrakesh: 32 reviews and 82 photos


I was amused reading that the sultan summer
residence where he would go on a holiday
with his family was just on the other side of
the pool. The interior of this parth was
highly contrasting with the splendour of his
official palace.

Now the ruin houses a breeding colony of storks.
These magnificient black and white birds
are all over town and you can sometimes see
them fly using the warm air to keep circling
with the snowy mountaintops in the back.
The thick walls seem to be perfect to build
their nest. Each almost leaving exact the same
space in between them.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
