In the heart of the Medina, only 10 minutes walk from Djama El Fna square and Saadian Tombs, the Riad Alma has the charm of a traditional Moroccan house with cosmopolitan influences. If the Riad Alma décor is cosmopolitan, the building materials are borrowed from traditional Moroccan artisans. The “tadelakt” is omnipresent, on the grounds and on the walls, no longer reserved for the baths as in the past. There are frescoes sculpted in plaster, moucharabiehs that protect privacy and copper lamps that have been patiently hammered by the most skilled artisans. Combined with this ancestral craftsmanship are all the comforts of a modern home: central air conditioning and heating in every room, fireplaces, flat screen television and a swimming pool.
