It is a very nice walk around the kasbah. You get to experience the blue that - at least me - remind of Morocco. The cafe at the end with the view to Sale is very nice and prices are good. Do not miss the ART gallery inside where you can buy really nice postcards and posters as well as... More

Kasbah is really worth a visit. We walked around with a local guide and his payment was definitely worth it as we say so many beautiful places in 2 1/2 h including the view to the sea and river, the old blue colored houses and the beautiful garden and so well kept old buildings. Anyway you need at least 2... More

We tried to visit the kasbah but were put of by the people at the gate. Having traveled to Essaouira, Marrakech and Fez for the past weeks I expected a lot more from the locals. Being given wrong directions so they can "guide you" because you are lost didn't impress us at all and then to find the road block,... More

The Oudaias was amazing let's get that straight. From our little place it was about a 10 minute walk and we visited once and loved it. We love seeing the blue and white walls. This is a Rabat attraction must

Loved the architecture and jewelry museum. Wish the jewelry museum had been better cared for despite the fact that the content was wonderful.

The Kasbah des Oudaias is near the souk and the old city of Rabat. I had seen it in passing before on previous visits to Rabat, but now decided to investigate. It is a treat! The interior is mostly pedestrian only 'streets' or paths, between brilliantly painted white/blue buildings. The doors, like many Moroccan doors, are very artistic. The Spanish... More

Outside was very beautiful and I am sure inside too but there are too many poor inhabitants trying to get money out of you; did not matter whether you are white or brown skin like me- as long as they know you are a tourist! Got disturbed by a small kid kept following me around asking for money. Terrible place!

My son and I visited Rabat last year and one of the first sights we explored was the Kasbah des Oudaias. There are many narrow alleys barely wide enough to allow two people to pass each other. Of special interest are the door ornaments that reflect the owner of the house behind the door. Visiting the kasbah without a tour... More

When you go in the Kasbah, women will try to do Henna painting on your hand. If you don't want it done (they are very quick and will squirt the dye on your hand immediately), say so and keep walking. They will get another "customer" but do not let them do the design and they say you won't pay because... More
