Dar Si Said Marrakech Reviews
Nice Museum ! Jan 01, 2011
Further to the north of the Bahia Palace is a pleasurable building, Dar Si Said, housing an impressive Museum of Moroccan Arts.
The building is the work of Si Said, a half-brother of grand vizier Bou Ahmed who expended the Bahia Palace. In fact, Dar Si Sadi is a smaller version of the Bahia, with finer and more impressive decoration.
The Museum houses an important collection of Moroccan arts, including jewellery from the Anti Atlas, an impressive eighteenth and nineteenth-century woodwork collection, Berber carpets from the High Atlas, pottery from Safi and Tamegroute and leatherwork from Marrakech.
The most important exhibit in the Museum is a marble basin dating back to the 10th century, brought to Marrakech from Cordoba by the Almohad Sultan Ali Ben Youssef.
