This was a bit disappointing. We saw the grounds, mostly driving around, but of course this is a palace, so you can't go in. I was told " no one knows what it looks like inside, but we (Moroccans) don't need to know that. This is a good king, i kept asking if the US could borrow him for a... More

Our Rabat bus tour included a visit to the Royal Palace of Rabat where you enter an impressive complex with some really stunning Moorish architecture. Unfortunately, we could not enter the palace itself but just see it from a distance including the guards. Apparently when the King is around the fountains are switched on outside the palace.

Intensive Garden and a mosque where the king prays are nice. Paid toilets are available. They kept our passports and the driver ID card(Moroccan guy) and return them when we left. According to...

Just the entrance is impressive, long avenue with trees leads you to small mosque Ahl-Fas and than you continue to the mechouar-large parade ground infront of the royal palace. Infront of the palace are royal guards and you can take pictures. There are College Royal, public assemblies, extensive gardens, houses for the stuff.

This is the residence of the King of Morocco. There were no tours that we were aware of. We were able to get within a couple hundred feet to take pictures. Large grounds, lots of armed officials in the area.

This was the Royal Palace and while we have accepted that we cannot get close, the rest rooms outside could have been more maintained and cleaner especially as these were part of the Royal Palace grounds.

What a grand palace. You cannot get too close, but just seeing the beauty of the buildings and the enormous monuments is worth the trip alone. Go don't rush.

If you are in the neighborhood its worth stopping for a brief look see. You can't go in or even get closer than a couple hundred yards of the palace.

Worth a look if you are passing but you can't go in any of the buildings so it's a bit like a walk round Whitehall

We walked from The Medina to the palace. We were sent all around the wall to get in, not allowed on the public road used by cars and coaches. After a route march saw sign Palais Royal - this must be the place we thought- no sent back to an unspectacular portico with a police station behind. Had to hand... More
