Old Walls, Young Birds
Part of the outer wall of the el-Badi Palace in Marrakech is used as a breeding ground for storks in spring. The palace is surrounded by an approximately 135 × 110 m rammed earth wall with only a few entrance gates. Not much remains of the buildings that once leaned against the wall.
The palace was once the largest and most magnificent palace complex in Morocco. Not much remains of the Saadian splendour, but the ruins still give an idea of the dimensions of the seat of power.
