Seven elaborate, golden doors with Moorish arches and brass handles lead to Dar el Makhzen. The center of the façade stands 80 feet tall. This is the Royal Palace for the King of Morocco and the sultan’s family when visiting Fez. Inside are 200 acres of gardens, a parade ground and multiple grandiose buildings and mosques. The palace is not open to the public. However, it is worth visiting within the Fez el Jdid section of the city in order to savor its exterior.
