The exterior of El Mechouar is great and well preserved. It's a nice area to walk around as well. However, the excitement of visiting a citadel wears off very quickly once you enter. There is not much to see and the interior is more so a walled off park (the term park used loosely - people sitting on benches). There is a really intriguing ramparts walk that would be nice to visit but I was quickly directed away from them and was pointed back to the bench area. It's really lame that they won't allow visitors to walk it. I was disappointed in the experience.

Palace has been restored after the French destroyed it. The stucco and tile work in the interior is incredible. There was an exhibition of exquisite women's period costumes in the Palace. Beautifully displayed. Excellent view overlooking the city from the fortress. One can easily spend an hour going through the complex.
