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

This is an original Rabat. This Kasbah reveal for you the city life and gets you back in the past. The blue and white still preserved in the small alles of the streets. Walk on the esplanade facing the sea, at the entrance of Bouregreg River and see the city of Salé from far. Don't miss a cup of Moroccan... More

This is unquestionably one of the most attractive historic sites in Rabat the region. As a resident of Rabat, It is essential that I bring all of my guests to the Kasbah. The tiny and narrow streets bordered by blue and white houses is quaint and allows many opportunities for attractive photographs. Some may find that it is a little... More

Such a romantic area with its "Greek" white and blue painted walls, cobble stones, wandering friendly cats, great stands of hot pink bougainvillea and oleander and fabulous views across the bay. I lived here for a few days in an airbnb house - "heart of the Kasbah" - it was grandma's house with beautiful traditional features. It is well lit... More

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
