It is not very well maintained or preserved. Its just like they found ruins and they are not putting enough money to restore it.

Very interesting, beautiful panorama. I went when there were almost no tourists so I took a guide by myself. There are signs in French. I understand some French but they are not very rich in details so a guide is useful if you want to know a bit more. The guide I took was also prepared on local flora and... More

The Merinid Citadel of Chellah was the site originally abandoned by the Romans in 1150. The Chellah gardens are beautifully landscaped. As you walk down the main pathway you come to a 14th century necropolis which is the site of an earlier Roman town built by the Merenid Sultan Abou al-Hassan. Also on this site is the Merenid sanctuary where... More

Not much to see. The beach view is nice and a nice place for photos, but I didn't get much history of the place from my guide. the place has make shift cafes and bakeries, but not much to see.

Going in the morning we enjoyed Chellah with very little visitors. Filled with storks standing on their nests we could hear them. The garden is also very beautiful, it is a visit not to miss.

Nice and quiet place, only with cats and storks making you company. Nice place to relax and meditate in the ruins from two time periods - Roman and Medieval one.

The roman ruins gives me shivers (shivers in a good way).. The stones and structures are very old and so glad to have opportunity to still witness some of it standing. I guess there is so much history that we still need to learn and preserving this historical site gives future generations to appreciate the past. It's a bit of... More

I really liked the fact that there was some ruins from the roman times, and other very artistic and full of good energy. the place is really worth a visit and there is a lot to watch and see and feel.
