A very large palace covering a large area, with very high walls around the perimeter. The entrance doors on the tourist route are incredible works of art. Covered in handcrafted metal. A sight to behold.

It's a must see in Fez, seems to use every craft that Fez produces. Made even cooler with the royal family in residence and the ceremonial guard stated at the gates.

One of the many Palaces in the Imperial Cities. Amazing doors and entrances and carvings. Do it as part of the medina tours.
