The Kasbah is quite an interesting place. At first a fortress, this location has been transformed to accommodate locals in the area. The white and blue buildings inside of it are filled with mosaic designs and narrows alleys to explore. Once in a while you'll run into a beautiful cat, or a local asking you to enjoy their Moroccan tea... More

We did a walk through with a tour guide. Worth the time but believe it is important to have a guide to explain the history, bread making ovens and etc.

Just let yourself go through the maze of the white houses decorated in indigo blue. Mind the wooden carved doors. Go even further and enjoy the most amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean and of Sale (a town close to Rabat).

The enclosed fortress with it's narrow streets and blue and white walled houses is a real treat and is capped by the terrace overlooking the river and the Andalusian gardens just beyond.

The Kasbah is well worth a visit and a guide is very helpful in explaining life and building in the Kasbah. We pick our guide ( Hamman) at the main entrance to the Kasbah and his knowledge was excellent and very informative. PS-he is not there every day

loved a walk through narrow streets, beautiful blue colors, ornate doors, and gorgeous views of the river, with cats lounging everywhere enjoying life :) Made tons of pictures, on a sunny day it is well worth visiting.

Beautiful old town with meandering streets. Don't miss out on Mint Tea on the terrace. They charge for the tea and pastries separately so beware. The rices are a little more expensive than elsewhere but they haven't got the view!!

This amazing old Kasbah is very well kept and strolling the alleyways all painted in blue and white is a wonderful experience. I tipped a local guide to tell me some about it's history, buildings, and architecture as well as guide me through it's winding passageways.

Colourful in blue and white, nice gardens and view out over River Bouregreg. Peaceful for a stroll round and nice place to have a drink or sit down in the gardens. Due for a lot of development around this part of Rabat and across river in future.

This is a small town within a town, easy to walk round in a few minutes and full of attractions, mostly homes nowadays but a few artisan shops. The viewing area overlooking the sea is fabulous and one can understand why this was a pirate stronghold in the past. It's from this particular fort that slave traders ventured forth to... More
