The American Legation and its splendid "apartments" are located on Rue d'Amérique. From 1821 to 1956, it housed the American diplomatic mission before it moved to the capital, Rabat. Today it features exhibitions of national and international contemporary art, as well as historical documents. The paintings by artists such as Mohamed Naciri, James McBey and Yves Brayer are set off to good effect in the elegant Moorish-style decor (sculpted wood, wrought iron etc).
