Touristic sites of Rabat

  • Kasbah des Oudaïa: One of the city's top sightseeing locations. Within the walls of an 11th century fortress, white-and-blue houses along narrow streets create a quiet and picturesque atmosphere. There is a beautiful commun garden and also located inside, is the oldest mosque in Rabat, the Kasbah Mosque, built in 1150. The Kasbah offers excellent views over to Salé and the Atlantic Ocean

  • The tower of Hassan. The unfinished Hassan Tower was the work of ruler Yacoub al-Mansour and would have been the minaret for a mosque on this site. Upon his death in 1150, construction was abandoned and this 45 m tower is all that remains. Beautiful motifs and designs cover the tower's façade which is next door to the Mausoleum of Mohamed V.

  • The Necropolis of Chella are remnants of a 14th century Merinid citadel-town. The walled ruins are located on top of an older Roman town called Sala, archaeologically uncovered in the 1930s. The ruins of mosques and mausoleums are covered with rambling brambles and there is a forum, bath and temple of the Roman excavations. An overlooking terrace provides fantastic views across the necropolis.

  • The Mausoleum of Mohammed V : is where former king Mohammed V and his two sons former king Hassan II and his younger brother Moulay Abdallah are resting in peace.
