Surrounded by French-style landscaped gardens, Royal Palace of Rabat serves as the residence of Moroccan royalty. Constructed in 1864, the building provided the setting for many important events over the years, including a royal wedding.

Adorned with flowerbeds, antique canons, and a central fountain, the square hosts official parades.

  • This royal palace is mainly a photo stop, but, for me, it was also an opportunity to see the exterior/architecture of a Moroccan royal palace. Actually, I was more impressed with the amount of land...

  • A visit to the kings residence, is on the list for places to see in Rabat, however, you can only see it from afar, however still worth the journey.

  • Interesting palace. No fences. Lots of different guards on foot. Do not walk close to the palace - a guy in a suit will come up to you and request you move back.

  • Consists of great area of houses and parks. To enter we needed to declare passports.
  • This place is so beautiful. It’s free to visit just check in at the police station at the door and present your ID and you are good to go.
  • One of the attractions here in Rabat. Palace looks nice from the outside. Be careful with what kind of shots you take with your camera though. Maximum security as it is still the residence of the present King of Morocco and his Royal family members.
  • Nice, you can enter after a security checkpoint and you can only see the entrance of the palace from 50 meters away. You can't enter the palace. Is nice but is not a must see.
  • Bring your passport to be able to get in and walk around the other buildings. Really nice and clean streets and gardens around.
