This Palace is part of a fairy tail. Either in a sunny day or in a rainy day, this visit is a must if you like history, architecture and culture.

As with all of the royal palaces, you can't really get close enough to see much besides gates, doors, and guards. Guessing from what you can see, the interior is probably spectacular, but to me this stop is just an exercise in unfulfilled curiosity -- a tease.

It is worth having a look there is a mosque in the are,(as there is every were in Morocco) A large garden and a very big open space and a long road inside the area. I will put some photos on once i have down loaded them.

Not much to see, it's too far away, but surrounded by a big garden, if you are in a hurry, better things to see in Rabat, but if you decide to go, don't forget your passeport, mandatory to get in.

Impressive landscape of big green areas inside the premises of the royal palace in Rabat ,the capital of Morocco . The different uniforms of the guards are nice to look at. You are allowed to photo them but not near them. It is a palace worth seeing

We stopped at the palace garden which are really big with weird shaped trimmed trees. You can see palace only from the distance so nothing really exciting, only gate and guards quite far away. If you are short of time , better skip it. Pictures below us all what you can see

Actually, besides the different guard uniforms and architectural designs on the walls, there is not much to see. but if you are history + archi lover, this place has loads to offer you.

We were forced to go here as part of a tour. The most interesting thing was the different guard uniforms. You can take pictures of them, but can't get close to palace or enter it, and the grounds are not pretty. Waste of an hour of vacation time.

Not much to see here. You get in, there is a guide which will ask you for 200 dirhams, shows you the main entrance, and thats it. Not worth going in, the Royal Palace in Fes has also a nice gate and nobody bothers you there for money.

We were not able to walked near the entrance of the palace since it is heavily guarded and not allowed. But we were able to walk around the palace area and see some wonderful old trees. A quick stop by is enough if you are visiting Rabat. Our guide gave our passports upon entrance and returned upon exit.

Thank Jen F
