4.4
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Rabat
Walk the picturesque streets of Kasbah des Oudaias, one of the town's most historic quarters and part of the World Heritage Site that protects Rabat's most prized landmarks. First constructed in the 12th century, the kasbah includes an old palace and mosque, and a knotted core of streets with whitewashed and blue-accented homes. A key feature comes in the form of the large Almohad period gate, built in 1195 CE and providing the most atmospheric entrance to this old part of town. Catch extensive views of the ocean from atop the kasbah's ramparts, and take a stroll down to the beaches to watch the waves crash against the ramparts. Put Kasbah des Oudaias and other Rabat attractions into our Rabat day trip planner , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • It was the first Kasbah that I traveled in Morocco and I was charmed by the alleys and doors. People don't like photographs very much. There are sellers, but they are not insistent and you can walk quietly.

  • The Kasbah des Oudayas is surprising in every way! Certainly the neighborhood a little poor, but to visit absolutely, because very typical. If you want to immerse yourself in real Moroccan life, this place is perfect. It has the special feature of traditional habitat. Indeed, austere from the outside, it is very richly decorated inside. The visitor will discover among its walls all the ornamental refinement of traditional architecture. On the other hand, while walking you will arrive at a terrace where there is a panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean. Not far away, there are cafes next to oued Bouregreg where you can have a very good mint tea with Moroccan cakes.
