The Rabat Medina is beautiful and quite authentic. The streets and houses are well-maintained. It is a great place to visit.

Was the first Medina i visited on my Morocco tour, being from India, it felt like just another basic market. After visiting the ones in Fes & Merrakech, the one in Rabat felt rural in comparison. Be prepared for lot of local crowd, rush and rubbish. Did enjoy the food stalls serving cheap and delicious food, being a vegetarian my... More

Rabat's medina is full of surprises breaths authenticity! The medina gathers all the shopping material that would wish to find in Morocco, from a simple 'souvenir' to a carpet. The medina kept its authenticity through the years and remains one of the highlights of the city. It is easy to park your car in oudaya and walk from the entrance... More

Not worth it. Dirty, smelly ugly place. In Rabat there is only one nice and clean street. Rest of the city is just blant and dirty. We also got n the middle of some kind of demonstration and wanted to film. A big man in a suit (most probably some agent) asked us to hand over camera and checked all... More

If I were to only go to one place in Rabat, it would definitely be the Medina. True Moroccan shopping. Be sure and bring your bargaining abilities - if you pay the quoted price you paid twice as much as you should've!

We took a wonder round between 8-9pm on a week day evening. There was still plenty of stalls open to view their wares, what was pleasant was that there was no hard sell nor pestering you to come look and buy. We was left alone to view at our own pace. The place had the typical smells and hussle an... More
