Kasbah des Oudaias, Rabat

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 day trip planner attractions into our {2}, and watch your holiday take shape.
