Not much there, but cute quaint streets. Very close to Mdina where we thought we were but realised it was actually Rabat.

The old town had less character than say Fes, Meknes or Marrakech. The streets were narrow and crowded and there were few shops with goods that tourists would like. That said, when you find one, bargain there rather than in other popular tourist towns in...More
