A beautiful memorial

An impressive memorial to a beloved king. Fantastic ceiling and tile work. Adjacent to an ancient unfinished mosque. Worth a quick visit

Unlike guards at many other similar places in the world like in the UK or Russia, the guards at this mausoleum do not behave like robots, but like human beings. They smile and even laugh when something funny happens. It does not seem to affect their general attiude of respect for the former king whose tomb they protect. Bravo.

This is a must when visiting Rabat. It is perched high up the hill over looking the ocean. The architecture is stunning both inside and outside. The carving, mosaics tile work, marble steps, black onyx floor, ornate ceilings are just beautiful. The contrasting colours of the minurette and blue ocean and sky created stunning photos. There are two guards sitting... More

The Mausoleum itself is in a worderful marble carved house, located in the middle of a wide space where you´ll notice a lot of what seems an "unfinished Temple" (in fact, it was being built but destroyed by the earthquake that destroyed...

We had an extra day in Casablanca and were advised to take the train to Rabat, only an hour away with trains running every half hour both ways. No one speaks English so when we stumbled on a tourist center we were able to get a map and find our own way around the city. It was quite hot that... More

This is a must when visiting Rabat. It is very impressive and somewhat reminiscent of Napoleon's Tomb in Paris. The vista overlooking the Atlantic is beautiful. Worth the walk and the visit.
