A nice view

You can't go in but it is interesting from the outside and the information from our guide made it worth seeing. You will only spend a little time there.

Bring your passport otherwise you will not be allowed in. Exterior visit only. Not worth the effort.

The main royal palace in morocco (there are 14 in the country), it's big, very nice on huge area, but you can see it only from a distance for security reasons.

The royal palace is beautiful and if you go with a tour director, they will tell you the history and the current situation with the palace,the King and his family. But as many mentioned, you can not get very close since they have barricades in front of it and they do want pictures to be taken. But if you are... More

The Royal Palace is a beautiful building located on beautiful grounds. You can only visit the outside. You can not go inside the Palace. Our guide explained about the current King & about the Royal family which was interesting. The King appears to be loved by most Moroccans. This is worth an hour long visit. Great photo opportunities.

You cant go inside but can take pictures of the palace grounds which is beautiful. There are guards that are wearing various uniforms of the government which you can take pictures of from a distance.

It was interesting to see the royal palace and the guards from at least four branches of military all standing at attention outside. It was also interesting to know that the king chooses not to reside in this palace when he is in town, but instead commutes from his home in another part of the city.

Entry to the palace (not surprisingly) is not possible. Nevertheless, the architecture of the palace and the adjacent mosque can be appreciated. Well worth making the effort to visit if in the city (but a bit remote from public transport facilities).

This was my fourth visit to this site, the first was 60 years ago. It is still as beautiful today as it was then. Only perceptible changes are that the barricades are longer and stronger, and the guards cannot be photographed.

This is not worth a stop. Ask your driver to pause briefly enough to take a pic from the road because they will not allow tourists within 100 yards of the front door.....or you'll get THE WHISTLE OF DOOOOOOM.
