More photos of Chellah to follow. I love Morocco!
Rabat, Morocco has a very European feel to it. Just look at this harbor.
We took a half hour to 40 minute stroll on this board walk to head to a medieval walled city.
We wanted to take a look at the medieval Andalusian gardens inside.
Right beside the Andalusian gardens was the blue and beautiful Kasbah of the Udayas, a kasbah of the Almohads who ruled Morocco from 1121-1269.
Look at all this blue! It was a maze of blue houses and walls.
Rabat is my favorite city in Morocco. First off, it’s underrated. There aren’t that many tourists and tourist traps. It’s clean and organized. It has more of a European feel than any other city than Morocco. It also has better attractions.
First, it has the Hassan Tower with its myriad of unfinished columns.
It was intended to be the largest minaret in the world but then in 1199, its financer Sultan al-Mansour died and they stopped the project. Would have made one heck of a minaret. Amazing
Another is the mausoleum of Mohammed V. It is the beautiful and elaborate tombs of the king Mohammed V and his two sons, Hassan II and Prince Abdallah. It was finished in 1971. The entrance is free.
