Fodor's Expert Review Palais Claudio Bravo

Taroudant Garden/Arboretum Fodor's Choice
Chilean artist Claudio Bravo came to Morocco in 1972 and built this palatial home with stunning gardens and stables 10 km (6 miles) outside Taroudant.

The palace is divided into several pavilions connected by inner courtyards and covered walkways, while inside the guest rooms, salons, and Bravo’s private rooms and studios are paintings, sculptures, and artifacts, including Roman and North African ceramics.
