Didn't get in as had a small 20litre backpack on, there's nowhere to leave it other than your hostel/hotel. Remember to bring your passport too.

I would say this is the only place I visited in Morocco to which I would not return. It is the current residence of the king, and although it is interesting to see the grounds there is not a lot to see or do. You cannot get close to the gate for good photos, and the buildings that you can... More

Royal Palace is the official residence of present King Mohammad VI, we can't go in but able to take photo of the royal guards. Surrounding villages are palace servants homes. Have a look and take a photo, if your tour is inclusive. Don't bother to go if you are not in private tour or in a tour group.

One cannot get any closer than the entrance and then not very near it. We took pictures of the guards from a distance--that was it.

One cannot enter the palace or the adjacent mosque but it's worth a look if you have time. The men with the yello slippers ar Royal Guards.

Well worth the visit , but unfortunately we can only see from the outside. Place used as a working office with the royal guards at the entrance.

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.
