We expected more of the Kasbah, and though we enjoyed walking around the narrow streets, we left a little underwhelmed. We had a nice tea at a café. There just didn't seem much to see and the place lacked a bit of soul.

A must for a walk around. A quiet stroææ along these small streets, is a walk in a different world. And at the end you can treat yourself to a coffee or mint tea at a small cafe with an amazing view over the river, estuary and over to Salé.

This Kasbah Des Oudayas, is not a kasbah it's a ksar because according to the definition of the Kasbah is a fortified town under control of only one family, but Oudayas Ksar has more than 3000 Families lives inside and most of them are wealthy families, you can see the style of the homes, and the decorations, with blue washed...

The old walled town with it's narrow streets is a place of fantasy. If you get lost, just go down (or up) and you'll get to the bottom (or top). View the valley from the café.

We toured the neighborhood and as we walked in we were greated by za local. This happens in many of the neighborhoods, folks are very freindly. He showed us around. The gardens were very nice. At the end of the walk about an hour I offered him a tip. He informed me that the cost was three times what I... More

We were advised by our Raid owner that the best time to tour the Kasbah was the evening, around sunset, and we were not disappointed. It's a beautiful area with lovely well lit but narrow alleys and many a blue door! There was some filming going on whilst we strolled so we did not get to see all of it,... More

Everything about our visit was beautiful! The alleyways lined with stark white walls and bold blue doors, the views off the restaurant with tasty treats for purchase, loved everything! Plenty of cats around as well so watch your step for poo. Restrooms are available near the restaurant.

An outsider you will never be able to buy a house there. Houses will be passed on to family members. A very lovely tradition. Have a stroll through the narrow alley ways and enjoy the lovely blue paint on walls and doors. Do not miss the garden a few steps further down the city wall.

The Kasbah is incredibly confusing and difficult to navigate. My friend and I ended up following a local through the weaving streets, who came us an impromptu tour and took us to where you can see the Atlantic form the walls of the fortress. At first, we were both a little skeptical, but he ended up being interesting and genuinely... More
