I visited Chellah on a Thursday afternoon. There were few other tourists there so it was quite peaceful and relaxing. These ruins cover much more area than I had anticipated so you can do quite a bit of walking to see everything. The admission price is low- only 20 dirhams. It's a beautiful place to walk around. I would go... More

Visit the ruins and walk around the greenery. Cheetah is relatively quiet and cool. Great place to escape the hustle of the downtown. Interesting ruins and great opportunity for photographs.

This spot is beautiful in all seasons. You can spend an hour or a few, if you are ready to just relax and entertain yourself with a book, snack or chatting. Very family friendly in terms of open space in general but some guards will whistle if kids climb on rocks or trees; often hard to tell what are ruins... More

Interesting way to spend a couple of hours. Signage is minimal but not really necessary if one is just enjoying the architecture. Interesting pool with huge eels. Plenty of cats as with everywhere.

Surprisingly uncrowned but fascinating glimpse into the history of the wealth of a port city. There are better preserved sites in other North African and Southern European countries but this is certainly worth a visit if you come to Rabat.

The site has a very rich heritage where it had been colonised by the Phoenicians and then later the Romans and Berbers. With the help of a guide, you understand the significance of this place and what the ruins used to be. The Moorish ramparts look absolutely stunning as the entrance has a very charming medieval feel to it. Look... More
