"Bab Kasaba and Rue Kassabah" Top 5 Page for this destination Asilah Favorite Tip by kit_mc

  Rue Kassabah, Asilah
by kit_mc

Favorite thing: The main northern entrance to the Medina is the one that I suspect most people are likely to take. If you've been to other Medina's such as Fes, then you'll be immediately struck by how clean this area is, with whitewashed buildings and streets wide enough for cars to drive down.

The largest street is the one at the Bab Kasaba entrance, Rue Kassabah. On this street is the Hassan II Cultural Centre, which apparently has an art gallery and various events during the year. Unfortunately while I was in Asilah the centre appeared closed, so perhaps it's not open all year round.

Keep on walking to the end of this street deeper into the Medina and you'll see the large Place Abdellah Guennoun and the El Kamra Tower.
