The Royal Palace of Rabat


The Royal Palace, or Dar al Mahkzen, was built in 1864 on the ruins of the old royal palace. Today it is the seat of government.

It is an architectural complex surrounded by a guarded enclosure. It is made up of the seat of the government and includes a mosque, a barracks for the guard, a royal college and a small racetrack as well as various ministerial buildings.

The buildings are all topped with saddleback roofs of green tiles, structured according to the model of a traditional city house; they are built around lively large gardens and interior courtyards.
