Touring the Roman ruins was neat, but certainly accentuated by the sound of the storks with their funny cry. Lovely little nooks in the shade that are perfect for a picnic!

It was great to walk through the ruins and feel the sense of history throughout the grounds. A lot of interesting plants make the site beautiful. Storks are abound, nesting high in each of the towers. Very interesting experience.

This is a beautiful garden with a large variety of plants, cats, storks, and it also has the ruins. We spent a morning here and really enjoyed the sights. Bring 5dh for parking if you have car.

An absolutely wonderful experience that takes you back to pre-Christian times. The stork experience (nested above) reminds one of a "Jurassic" experience.

This is a beautiful garden at first, then there are some very impressive roman ruins, and there are nests of storks everywhere. It's worth a look.

The ruins of this ancient fortress will leave you wondering what it must have been like to live within such walls, with columns resembling something you would see in Athens mixed with tropical gardens it is a wondrous sight

Chellah is a very interesting site. Within the Islamic built walls there are Roman, Byzantine and Islamic ruins. I suggest a guide to show you around and explain the history of the site. The Roman ruins are in one central location. The best Byzantine structure is the church and baptismal pool. There is a colony of storks that have made... More
