As others have said, there isn't too much to see. As part of a tour we managed to get quite close to the exterior after the guide showed his ID to security but its a bit like looking at the outside of Buckingham Palace without being able to go inside. The carvings and tile work is stunning though and we... More

Okay its an impressive door, the fence around it is big and that is all I can say. They have armed guards protecting the place, I was not allowed in and neither was anyone else so there is little to tell.

It is situated right next to the so-called artisan bazaar, but the place is heavily guarded on all sides, one side street next to it is also blocked. You just see the impressive walls ad gates and tops of the trees over the wall, and upper parts of the buildings inside - and that's it. A pity, really

It is huge. Mass building worth seeing but you don't get to know much other than what is showing from beyond it's walls.

It is not open for public, never. Cant even take pictures of the gates, guards will have you walk away. It is advertised as a touristic attraction in most of the travel guides..but cant see more than some walls and nice gates. Overrated.

We took a lot of photos of the Royal Palace of Casablanca, but it didnt really do much for me other than to look impressively grand. Worth hopping out if you are passing.

The palace is located in the Habous district, which is Casablanca’s new medina. Although this may be only one, of the many of the King’s residencies throughout Morocco, it is his principal dwelling within Casablanca. Like many of the palace grounds and residencies, they are closed to the general public. Be especially vigilant if the king is in, as the... More

The palace is off limits to visitors so it can be seen only from outside. However the exterior was eye catching with its marvelous decorations.
