Medina of Rabat, Rabat

Landmark · Tourist Spot
Explore the capital's oldest quarter, Medina of Rabat--the walled city center and part of a wider World Heritage Site protecting a wealth of monuments in the metropolitan area. Taking shape with the building of the ramparts in the 12th century CE, the medina contains a lively collection of narrow streets, old homes, traditional cafes, and souks. Take a walking tour around the quarter, and make sure to head to the leather bazaar, where a large selection of stalls and shops sell high-quality leather goods, including poufs, shoes, bags, and wallets.
