I happened to walk past here on the way to see Chellah, I wandered in under the main drive way gate and the security guard there was very friendly and asked me if I wanted to go in. I agreed and they asked for my Passport to take whilst I was inside - which I got back at the end.... More

we took a car and driver to the Royal Palace and seat of Parliament. Our driver was known by the guards so he drove us to right in front of the palace and told us he's leave us there and we could just walk around. This area is the seat of the Moroccan government, it is sort of like the... More

Though we were not able to actually go inside the Royal Palace, it was interesting to see the site and then learn about the Palace, its use, the employees and the history from our guide. The building dates back to the 18th Century; Rabat has been Morocco's capital since 1912. The Royal Palace grounds include and Administrative building as well... More

The stop at the Royal Palace of Rabat was the strangest site for me. We were basically escorted to the ground outside the palace. There were chain which set the restriction where the tourists were allowed. The distance from the chain to the palace entrance must be approximately 100 yards. Our local guide told us that we can take photo... More

The palace grounds are large, but the only real attraction is the palace complex, and one can only look at the outside architecture and guards in various uniforms [army, navy, police?]. May be interesting for royals groupies, but otherwise not much to see - lots more at Chellah or the Mausoleum of Mohamed V.

You can't go inside. All you can do is look at the gates and the guards. Another Rabat site that merits a quick stop and not much more.

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.
