Palaces are overrated in Morocco as all you see are exterior walls, gates, guards and a distant view of the building. I was expecting to visit some rooms in a palace as is typical in Europe. A major disappointment in the tour.

Take the opportunity to see the two main gates to the royal palace when being in the Habous area of small shops and the olive market. The palace entrance is guarded and you have to approach the guards to get pass them to get access...More

The palace was completely blocked off by security, we couldn't even get close enough to see the front gate. The outside of it also doesn't look too special.

Like the other royal palaces elsewhere in Morocco, including the king’s official residence in Rabat, the Royal Palace of Casablanca is a magnificent example of traditional Islamic architecture. Unfortunately, like the other royal palaces, the one in Casablanca is also not open to the public...More

The walls are tall. The guards are on every corner/entrance and for security reasons they don't like/let you take pictures. If you are driving by the place, it is worth looking at while you drive. :(

Apparently this Palace is only used for greeting foreign dignitaries these days. It's not open to the public but you can get your picture taken outside the gates. Lots of armed guards in the Square, so you have behave!

Te palace can only be viewed from the plaza in front and only with a tour guide since it is guarded 24/7. Beautiful entry gate and design. Not a must see in Casblanca

THe palace is never open, even the local population knows the building. The only part is the walls and the marvellous mains metal door with very elaborate mosaics. Fine sample of the rich maroccon artistic craftsmanship!

Our tour took us to the Palace. The King was not there and apparently is rarely there. We did not get to go inside but just toured the grounds.
