Have to go through security chest and register passport before Enron. Then it is just empty grounds. Nothing really much to see. Not even worth taking pictures.

Interesting to see. But just a view of the gate and the walls. Mosque nearby, and a view of the defense ministry headquarters.

Garden and the Mosulla is opened to the public if your have a qualified guide to take you end. It grand and the grounds are well manicured. But you can get too close to the palace which is heavily guarded.

Very impressive but you can only look at the facade and the guards. Should have skipped this. There are so many other better sites in Rabat to see.
