If you visit Rissani, you'll see traditional ksars outside of town and Ksar El Fida, this is one of the oldest and the most famous. The origin of this ksar goes back to Moulay Ismail, the powerful king and sultan who built Meknes, and later in the 19th century, Moulay Abd al Rahman rebuilt it like a palace!
Now it's a museum and one of the must-see places in Rissani.
This is the entrance of the ksar. It's is taken care of a guardian family and they will show you around.
In the courtyard, you'll see a big gate of the ksar. Usually, ksar is a complex of small houses but this one is just like one big house, or palace.
The hallway, bigger than the Bahia Palace in Marrakech. You'll see how Moulay Abd al Rahman was influential at that time.
Look up! Beatiful decorerations are still there.
Zerij tile floor. The reparation of the ksar is not completed yet.
The guide will tell you a brief history of Rissani and the Kingdom of Morocco.
