The Oudaias Kasbah dates back to the 11th century, which was a fortress built to protect the Oudaias. Today hundreds of rich families both local and foreigners live inside the Kasbah; each house is richly decorated with hand painted doors, colourful flowers, and fancy ornaments. The walls are painted in a calming blue colour to keep the mosquitos away, which also gives it a very cool atmosphere. At the end of the Kasbah there's a magnificent view of the ocean and the city of Salé. It may be a good idea to hire a guide to take you around as it's full of winding, narrow streets, but set a price beforehand as we got ripped off!
