Ben Aïssa Ben Abdkarim El Boukhari who was the pasha of the Meknès medina at the time built this building in just one year, between 1912 and 1913. Dar El Bachaouate then became the home of the different pashas until 1969. Take time to admire this magnificent monument that reflects the full glory of Hispano-Moorish architecture.
Today, it is the seat of the Meknès Andalusian music academy. This monument is one of the many marvels of Hispano-Moorish art which you can see in Meknès. The town of Meknès is in fact on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1996 thanks to its architectural riches.
