The Kasbah des Oudaias is a striking remnant of antiquity located at the northern most aspect of the city. What remains of the walled city circumnavigates a section of Rabat to this day. If you are in the Medina you will cross Avenue al Marsa and enter through one of two gates massive ornate arches. The lower gate will afford... More

Don't miss walking through the medina to the kasbah, panoramic viewpoint, and along th narrow winding street to cafe maure for mint tea, cookies, and a view, followed by a visit to te Andalusian gardens and the national jewelry museum, if that interests you. The gates to the kasbah are magnificent and the blue doors and buildings evoke a sense... More

About 16 of us were brought here as part of a tour. We were thankfully the only tour on site which allowed a peaceful, quiet visit. The gardens are tranquil with the gentle sound of water in the background. A number of cats strolling and basking in the garden add to the charm. The tea house has a magnificent view.... More

We were wandering around just fine and then Made the rookie mistake of allowing someone to give us a "tour". Must have been the jet lag. Just wander the fort and village at your leisure on your own.

The ruins of the original Ribat are next to the Merenid oudaya Gate leading into the Kasbah. The 17C semaphore platform has panoramic views across the Bouregreg and the palace houses a jewelery museum and some attractive gardens. There is a teahouse selling cakes and pastries with views to Sale and all in all a pleasant half day outing

It would be lovely to live in this picturesque community -- except for constant possibility of finding a camera-toting tourist standing in front of my home taking photos of my artistic front door with its metal work, plants, tiles, etc. Oh, wait. That was me. There was also a little bit of shopping -- and a chance to enjoy a... More

Lovely spot to wander and have a slightly over priced tea (you get spoilt in Morocco, paying very little for tea and treats) However, the view is why you happily pay for tea at the place over looking the water. The Oudaias neighborhood is so lovely to wander through as well as the Spanish gardens. Certainly worth taking a look,... More

I entered the garden inside the gates of the Kasbah and had a nice stroll inside. I went to the main gate and was thoroughly pissed off in about 5 minutes. I entered the main street and this man tells me that the Kasbah is closing in one hour (suspicous a lie). I cruise on by and head down the... More

I absolutely loved this area. I like to walk and see beautiful things and this place delivers. It lets you out on the Semaphore Platform that overlooks the ocean, beach, and estuary. The beautiful blue and white buildings along the way make it well worth the visit alone. Highly recommend.

This walled city is a must see. We were there with a guide, but in daylight it is not necessary. The white and blue walls are bright and make the alleyways seem a little wider than they are. Small shops appear here and there where the alley widens. People live and play in the alleys. Some small boys kicked a... More
