The antics of the world's richest woman once played out in this palace.
A palace full of colorful history
The summer home of Barbara Hutton, one of the richest women in the world in the twentieth century, is up from the Small Souk on Rue des Almohades. With its fabulously decorated doors and windows, its walls once harbored some of the most outrageous stories in the city. Hutton, who was married to Hollywood actor Cary Grant, was known not just for her seven marriages, but also for her eccentricities and wild, luxurious parties at the height of the hippie era. Although this palace is no longer in use, you can just picture the nights of endless champagne and caviar (not to mention hashish-filled dates). Barbara Hutton, they say, went so far as to buy a title of king from an Indonesian monarch for one of her husbands. Ah, the life.
