I really like ruins and this one didn't disappoint. Plenty of beautiful arched stoneways to see and history to visit. There were also a tons of storks there with big huge nests. I had never seen storks in real live person before and didn't realize they were so big. But back to the Chellah Ruins, very easy to walk, much... More

Excellent place to visit - although quite a walk out of Rabat. Interesting islamic ruins and also an archaeological site from Roman times. Gardens quiet and restful. Never seen so many storks!

This is a 14th century Merinid necropolis. It's too bad portions haven't been better preserved, but you can still get a sense for how the place once was. As is typical for this time of year in Morocco, storks were nested everywhere.

This mosque is in garden area but ancient Phoenicians set the tone. The old Sultan's burial place is here. The river passing through separates the city of Rabat to that of Sala. Cranes are present and their best were very visible. An ancient and medieval history that is preserved. 4/5

Entrance fee at 1 euro approx and you spend some quality time to a monument highly linked the moroccan history. Good shades throughout the paths and 45 minutes guided tours also available on the spot.

Recommend this to all visitors to Rabat. Interesting to see and a different insight into Morocco. Takes about an hour.

Waw! a wonderful impact, the walls of an old Roman citadel which later became a Koranic school where the two cultures blend using the tanks of the Roman baths as eto tanks ablutions before Muslim prayers or where to swim the sacred eels. A botanical garden of great value that surrounds everything with a local guide very well prepared. Refuge... More

Definitely worth the visit, very cheap (10 MAD), I got there really early at around 8:30, and for a full hour, I had the full site for myself! I enjoyed the nature and the history, signs are only in Arabic and French, so if you don't speak any, do your reading in advance. Even if no tourists were around, the... More
