This palatial complex is located in the center of the Fez El-Jedid area, and is surrounded by high walls with intricate and elaborate ornamentations. The doors are bronze, and they shine like gold. The interior of the palace is not available to the public because the king of Morocco uses the complex when he visits Fez.
