Although you are not allowed to go inside the palace, it is still interesting to see from the outside from an architectural and historical standpoint. Plus, you’ll get a breather from the hustle and bustle of the center of town.

Like many places in Morroco, the palace is in construction, so you won't see anything worth the 10dh you pay to get in. But it will certainly be worth it! They really are building something great. Don't pay the extra 10dh to see the big...More

We saw the place on the way to the Atlas Mountains, unfortunately you can only see walls and palm trees which are outside. The place is not open to tourists or anyone local to visit.

You can't see the inside, only the walls and it's absolutely huge. You can get a pretty decent idea of the whole palace just by driving by. No need to stop.

We did not enter the palace, only walked the perimeter. We were taking pictures of the main entrance when we were approached by the guard demanding to see and then delete ever picture we took. Very strange. It is a nice walk though
