The Kasbah is unique in that all the buildings are painted in white and blue, similar to the Greek islands. The street are clean in comparison to most Medina's in Morocco and the Andalusian Gardens within the walls are worth a visit

It was very enjoyable walk through the narrow streets, see the blue and white painted houses and some restricted areas. You do not need a guide but also you can give a couple of bucks to someone and they tell you the stories behind. Very good area to take a tea and enjoy the views to the river or to... More

What a nice surprise - almost reminded me of Santorini, Definitely worth a visit as this is a very beautiful part of Rabat. Didn't bother with the small museum or a guided tour as just enjoyed walking around it ourselves.

Some of the steep narrow streets date back to the 12th century but the houses in the kasbah were built in the late 17th and early 18th century. They are lime washed in blue and white and are very picturesque. They are mainly inhabited now by French Morrocans. The El-Atika mosque built in the 12th century is the oldest mosque... More

A little like a hidden treasure, these gardens are a lovely place to relax and people watch, there are a lot of cats to mediate on as well. While there, go to the cafe, overlooking the river for tea and Moroccan pastries, makes for a great afternoon.

Very close to the medina the Oudaias Kasbah is one of the best in Marrocco. Very well maintained and with an amazing garden it provides a great place to spend some time.

I visited this place numerous times over a month stay in Rabat. I don't get the huge tourist draw, but it is a very beautiful neighborhood and has a very Greek/Med island feel to it. There is a beautiful park and a café with a great overlook of the river. It is a fun place to walk around, but other... More

this place is probably the nicest in the old part of Rabat. Strolling through the blue and white is an unforgettable experience. Some people may be disturbing you and try to show you things for money, but if you know how to handle them this is not really a problem. The view from the terrace is incredible, but a bit... More

Pretty quaint quarter of Rabat facing the ocean and the estuary from where you get a good view of Sale (Rabat twin city). A little doorway from Cafe Maure leads to the Oudaias district. Is just like getting through a gateway to the past. Away from the hustle and bustle of Rabat Medina, here peace, quiet, narrow alley ways lined... More
