I found these palaces by chance, wandering around the narrow streets of the medina. These are some examples of some good standing families’ houses. Nowadays they are used as cultural centers or carpet shops. You still can find the original furniture so it is easy to imagine how these families lived two centuries ago. Even if you don’t want to buy carpets you can take a look inside and admire especially the wooden ceilings with rich lamps.
