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. Designed by French architects inspired by traditional Arabic motifs, the interior of the palace remains closed for visitors--you can take pictures of the royal guards from a large square in front of the entrance. Adorned with flowerbeds, antique canons, and a central fountain, the square hosts official parades.
