Dar al-Makhzen (Arabic: دار المخزن‎) or Palais Royal (Arabic: القصر الملكي‎), is a royal palace of the Alaouite sultan in the city of Fez, Morocco. The palace is located in Fes Jdid quarter. It has an area size of 80 hectares, and known for the brass gate ornamented with zellige tilework and carved cedar woods.
