A great way to spend a few hours with friends or families, with a museum and a park, a few arts & crafts boutiques, two tea house (slow, slow service). A nice destination to walk to from the Medina itself (10 minutes top), atmospheric but not flashy, authentic but not tacky.

Walking through here you get the feeling that you are really now in Morocco. There is much to see and it all adds up to a pleasant place to visit.

Behind the Medina of Rabat lays the Kasbah des Oudalas. This is the oldest part of Rabat. It gives a good idea how cities started. To understand the strategic location, you can walk down to a pier that protects the entrance of the harbor from the sea.

Small, narrow streets, some painted in deep blue with a nice view of the sea and the cemetery - visit the cemetery as well. However quirt a few unofficial guides were paddling their pretend services. Don't bother; just wonder around on your own pace.

It is a wonderful experience to go back in history and imagine the era when the Oudaias was built. From some vantage points you can get an amazing view of the sea. Or yu can wander through the tiny streets and see the vibrancy of life behind these walls. The garden is a fresh and inviting space also. A very... More

This little enclave has a great view of the sea. The blue washed walls were interesting, though spoiled by the power line running through them. The fort was under repair while while we were visiting. The gardens were pleasant as well.

Very typical Kasbah, narrow streets, white and blue small buildings make you feel the past, small friendly shops and cafes and a short view of the port will complete the experience.

First stop was at a tiny store selling sfinge Moroccan doughnuts and next to it another one selling r’gaif flat bread (both very tasty). Next we stopped at Gnawa Moroccan troubadour and joined his singing. Arrived through the blue alleys to the beautiful lookout on the river mouth of the Bou Regreg river opposite Salé. Along the walls of Salé... More

Walking around the twisty blue alleys, seeing the old buildings and how people live, it was just awesome. I would recommend spending sometime there looking down all the little streets. Watch out for the carts being pulled by donkeys down these little streets. Just a nice little excursion.
