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... read more

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.

Walking in, you have to show your passport, and that really sets the tone for the visit. Local folks take this visit very seriously. You are able to walk around, see a nice mosque and observe the facade of the "working palace" in Rabat from a distance of about 100 feet. Folks who work here are really kind, but they... More

Not really worth a visit here as you can only see the outer wall and the entrance. We came here as part of a tour group. It's fine if you have nothing else to do, but if I came to Rabat again I definitely would not visit here.

This is one of the many royal palaces in Morocco. The King does not normally live her, but visits occasionally. There are several government buildings that are in regular use. We were in Rabat during a royal wedding, so the grounds were only available to visit in the morning. We were with a tour group, so there was no need... More

This was an impressive site. Luckily we had a guide to explain what we were seeing. There are 3 types of guards at the entrances. Photographs are allowed. The description of how the royal family takes in children of little or no means to be educated if they are deemed worthy and gifted is admirable. The grounds are beautifully kept.
