Bahia Palace.

Bahia means beautiful. A fitting name for this jewel of a palace.

Built to house the 4 wives and 24 concubines of Ahmed Ibn Moussa (or Ba Ahmed), it is studded with exquisite wood carvings, mosaics, tile work, tiny explosions of colour in every square inch. It is delicate, intricate, and a labyrinth of a palace.
