"take a stroll down Kasbah..." Rabat Favorite Tip by Krystynn

Rabat General: 84 reviews and 102 photos

 
 

Favorite thing: take a stroll down <b><u>Kasbah des Oudaïas</b></u>.

This place also happens to be the oldest part of the city and overlooks the mighty Atlantic Ocean. It contains a huge garden, the oldest mosque in Rabat and an old palace that is now the <u>Museum of Moroccan Art</u>.

The Kasbah is also a walled citadel and its gates are as fascinating as the place itself.... <u>Bab El Kasbah</u> - better known as the <u>Oudaïa Gate</u>, has survived EIGHT centuries of this city and is still an amazing sight today. The rooms within the gate used to serve as a courtroom. And the promise of wondrous things lie beyond its huge wooden doors....
