Garden and the Mosulla is opened to the public if your have a qualified guide to take you end. It grand and the grounds are well manicured. But you can get too close to the palace which is heavily guarded.

Very impressive but you can only look at the facade and the guards. Should have skipped this. There are so many other better sites in Rabat to see.

One can observe and photograph the buildings but not actually visit any of them. But it is still worth a short visit to see how royalty lives in Morocco.

It was a good place to see. We had the chance to visit the interior of the walls but not the actual buildings. Great structure, perfect for a good soothing walk
