Royal Palace

The majestic Royal Palace is located right in the heart of Rabat and is open to the public.

It is moderately impressive from the outside and its real beauty can only be experienced when visitors start exploring the palace.

The King's personal mosque stands directly across from the Royal Palace.

Neither old nor very big, the palace still provides a fine illustration of Islamic architecture. The Royal Palace in Rabat, which was built in 1864, is surrounded by a wall with access three gates.

Visitors can also explore the space known as the Mechouar, which holds the Ahl-Fas mosque where the King led prayers on Fridays.

The Royal palace, where Mohammed VI lived, can be explored among other fantastic palaces found throughout Morocco.

The complex is big and the gardens that encircle the park are stunning, scenic and green.

The street leading to the main square and entrance of the palace are lined with well cared for trees.

The complex is well protected and the gates of the palace are impressive.
