Historical Masoleum on top of the hill with great views

Beautiful building bearing the resting place of the father of the king of Morocco. Next to Hassan tower and shares the same views of the city and the harbour

This is a two-fer as it's adjacent to the Hassan Tower. The mausoleum has a beautiful interior, colorful guards and is well worth a visit.

Outside, you have a heightened view of the Hassan Tower. Inside, the tile work is of course awe-inspiring since this is the final resting place of past Kings. Keep in mind that each small piece is hand-made. Don't be shy to greet the guards with a polite assalam aleikum; they will agree to take pictures with you, but it's best... More

An experience in history and architecture that will help form your understanding of Rabat, Morocco and their Royal family and lineage. A nice walk, a Vista to see the city and the river, and amazing and intricate tile work.

We visited this whilst we were at the Tour de Hassan. The mausoleum has beautiful decorations inside and lovely pools and fountains outside. The guards on horseback at the entrance gates are impressive too. Worth a visit

This site is one of the highlights of Rabat. You enter the vast courtyard going past guards on horseback that make for a great photo op if you are not afraid of horses. The Hassan Tower is interesting but incomplete. You'll see more guards as you enter the mausoleum which has outstanding architecture and gold and glimmer to spare. It's... More

Interesting building with ornate features also interesting from the history perspective worth a visit even if it's just to get a photo of the kings guards on their horses with their beautiful uniforms

I have been to a mausoleum before in Europe and normally it is a place of absolute silence. It also didn't feel right to take a photo of the grave, but it seemed absolutely normal there. Everyone was chatting (not only tourists) and taking photo's. The difference from Europe was interesting to me. Also, the architecture of this building was... More

The mausoleum is a beautiful example of Moroccan architecture and is situated next to the biggest failure of Morocco, the Rabat Tower. This tower was once planned to be become the highest tower of the largest Mosque of Morocco, but unfortunately they ran out of money and the Tower was only half way finished and the pillars of the Mosque...
