The Glaoui Palace at Telouet is stunning, ornate with expensive decorations but sadly deteriorating - so see it while you can. Its been left to slowly deteriorate since the last rulers lost their power back in the 40-50's.
I have roamed around this palace many times and even the recent visit I am still impressed by the colours,designs and variety - roaming around wondering how life must have been to live in such a place but probably with its imprisoning rules and rituals.

Take as many photos as you can!

Address: TElouet - drive or walk from centre of town
Directions: can be seen from many directions from miles away, drive through and follow the signs or park in the centre and walk behind the shops and around the fields, over the small creek and up to the palace

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
