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

On my first trip to Rabat I was on my way to somewhere else. I spent a couple of days walking around the medina and watching sunsets on the beach. On my second visit I started discovering more about Rabat and the small Kasbah des Oudaias. The Kasbah is an amazing place built over 700 years ago with everything children... More

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.
