This place was really interesting, but our guide told us some fantastic historical stories. If you don't have a guide, you may wonder why you're there. Guides hang around, you can get an official one, or unofficial - it doesn't really matter, as long as they know what they are talking about and make the visit interesting.

Who says there is nothing to do in Rabat? While there may not be a ton to do, but the Medina and a visit to the Hassan Tower are definitely worth it. This mausoleum is worth a quick trip and has some great photo opps with the countless mini minarets all across the site.

It's size is impressive and have beautiful details along the construction. It's located in a square with nice fountains and several pillars where used to be a mosque. The entrance to the square is guarded by 2 soldiers in 2 horses wearing nice costumes and you can take pictures of them. It's highly recommend

This imposing monument can be seen from almost any spot in Rabat and is particularly impressive at night. This is all part of the masoleum grounds so you can't miss it.

Yes, the tower and columns are not visually spectacular but listen to your guide or read up on the history of the tower and Mohammed V mausoleum before you go so you can appreciate what this place is all about. Great views of surrounding area from vantage point and intricate detail on all walls etc in Mausoleum. Maybe not a... More

I thought the interior of the mausoleum was just beautiful and definitely worth a brief visit. The view of the tower makes a great photo op as do the guards on horseback at the entrances. Not a must-see, but if you are in the area, definitely worth a quick visit!
