For visitors, a brief stop is sufficient, given that you cannot go inside any of the government or royal facilities.

The gate of the Royal Palace gives a glimpse of Moroccon architecture. As the palace is actually lived-in by the Moroccon royalty, one can only view the palace frontage.

Considering that you are not allowed to go inside any of the buildings, it's convenient to visit the palace if you do a drive by. The only interesting architecture is the gate and you can't event get close to that. You can only take a picture from across the street. Apparently they change guards every few hours or so but...

The Royal Palace, in Rabat,has a simply majestic entrance with massive, glorious decorative doors. This is however all you get to see, There is understandably no access to the interior as the royal family actually occupies the space. It is unfortunate that some small entrance to see the architecture of the building and not just the gates is not possible.... More

The Palace was beautiful from the outside and worth a slow drive by. We were told that you could not see the Palace, if one was so inclined. There's so much more to see in Morocco than Palaces.

The palace seems to be beautiful but unfortunately you're nt allowed to look at it closely. You're only allowed to walk up and down the central road and that's it. Even if you want to leave you can't use the gates of the central road and you have to get back to where you came in.

A beautiful palace like all the rest all aound morocco. Unfortunately, if you are not in a tourist bus, you can no longer just go and visit it. You cannot go in, vut you can see it from the outside, and maybe approach the main gate. There is also a mosque, the Tuarga area where people who worked in the... More

Very lovely grounds but you cannot get into any of the buildings. Do not get too close to the guards as they don' seem to like tourists.Not really very much too see.

Good for a photo stop and to stretch your legs! I'm sure everyone's photographs will look the same cos you cannot get any closer to the guards! And it is the only place you can take pictures of any police or guards. And did you know that the Moroccan flag is flown regardless if the Royal family is home or... More
