General public are barred from entering the Palace but they are even an impressive sight even from outside. The garden doors are famous for their Giant Brass knockers that were made by special artisans from Fes El Bali. The Palace is also famous for the golden doors. Dal el Qimma, a palace in the Royal Palace is also renowned for its beautifully painted ceilings and intricate mosaic works. The palace was built in the 17th century and it is situated right in the center if Fes el Jdid. Part of it still serves as the residence of the king of Morocco when he visits this area.

The royal palace is now home to innumerable valuable artifacts from all over morocco and includes carpets that come from Rabat, samples of pottery, silk fabrics, firearms and also ancient manuscripts. The museum houses a life-sized model of a Carthaginian tomb and also a pristine necropolis. Don't regret your not being able to enter the Palace. It's worth a view even from outside. The palace is of great historical value and is one of the major attractions of Fez.
