El Badi Palace is a splendid palace built by Ahmad al-Mansur in 1578 located in Marrakech.

Originally the palace had three hundred and fifty rooms lavishly decorated with gold, ivory, cedar wood and semi-precious stones, a pool made of Italian marble and gold, a vast central courtyard, fountains, gardens and an underground tunnel leading to a jail.

The palace was a venue for parties and grand festivals.

This palace took twenty five years to construct and was destroyed in a war by the Sultan Moulay Ismail in the seventeenth century and its parts were used by the emperor to build his own palace at Meknes.

Today the palace is used as a venue for holding the National festival of Popular Arts and the electronica music festival.
