El Badi Palace
El Badi Palace (Arabic: قصر البديع, meaning Palace of the Creator of Wonder or Palace of Wonder; also anglicized as the Badic Palace) is a ruined palace located in Marrakesh, Morocco. It was commissioned by the sultan Ahmad al-Mansur of the Saadian dynasty sometime shortly after his accession in 1578. The palace's construction was funded by a substantial ransom paid by the Portuguese after the Battle of the Three Kings. It is currently a popular tourist attraction.
