You can only view this from outside as you are not allowed to go in. you can click pictures from outside. luckily it was near to our hotel so didnt feel bad but otherwise waste of time

This place has always been closed. It is a symbol of Alexandria, but nobody can visit it. The Palace is inside Montazah gardens, the most beautiful place in Alexandria and a must see for all tourists.

You cannot visit the castle itself, only the surrounding premises. Still a pretty sight and easy to take in with the nearby royal gardens.
