Able to go into grounds of royal palace of Rabat. Not able to get any closer than about 100 metres from the door, but nevertheless quite interesting. Very large grounds which are well kept worth a look and the adjacent gardens very interesting. Must do.

We had a special guide so we were able to drive into the grounds and not hand over our pasports as others have mentioned. No, we didn't get to go into the palace but the grounds were beautiful.

Very difficult to find as Google maps misleads you. You need to turn in your passport to the police to enter the complex. You need to walk quite a bit in the heat. All this to see the entrance as you are not allowed to go in! Give it a miss!

It is a beautiful place, but you only get to go on to the grounds of the palace and take a look at the entrance in the wall surrounding the real palace, not worth doing if you could do other things.

We visited the Royal Palace on a tour from our Cruise Ship it was a nice looking building but you could only get to about 75 meters from the front of it and no closer a bit disappointing really it would have been really nice to explore even the front gate and the guards in their different coloured uniforms but...

The palace grounds cover a vast area with numerous buildings and gardens. The imperial residence is guarded by a member of each branch of the military and police, each in a different uniform. Great photo opportunity!

The Royal Palace is quite a site to see. There are several palaces throughout Morroco but you can actually visit inside the compound (not inside the palace) here. I am not sure about entrance through the main gate but our tour brought us into the main gate. We were able to see the outside of the main palace and the... More

Don't know why this is even listed as a tourist site since you really don't see the Palace. You can only go to the entryway and take photos of the guard and that's it. Although it's listed as a stop on every tour, it is a total waste of time.

Its not really like you actually see anything, its more like you go to a car park and walk across a square then take photos at an entrance, which is kind of Disney Aladdin feeling. Im sure its nice inside but no one gets to see anything really. Don't bother with this.
