About the Dar El Bacha Musée des Confluences
Located in the old Medina of Marrakech, Dar El Bacha is a stately residence built at the start of the 20th century and is a perfect example of a typical Moroccan riad, comprising a rectangular-shaped garden with 6 octagonal rooms on the 4 sides. It displays both the know-how of Moroccan craftsmen and rich decorative elements taking inspiration from Europe, notably Italy. The building was taken over in 2015 by the National Museum Foundation, which carried out the restoration in order to create a museum of ‘confluences’ and show the multi-faceted richness of Moroccan culture.
