We spent about an hour walking around the area and the old Roman ruins; and we were fascinated by the storks that were overhead more than the ruins----which were nice. To be fair, the ruins are probably fascinating to students of such things, but to...More

The Roman ruins here aren't as spectacular as Volubilis, but the site well worth a visit. The Islamic ruins are more spectacular. The mosaics are very fine. A beautiful park-like setting was built around the ruins during the French protectorate period in order to enhance...More

Sadly I did not have much time to explore the Chellah site which comprises the substantial remaining walls and gardens. What I did see was fascinating as were the storks and their nests.

Absolutely amazing. The Roman ruins were impressive. We were there in the winter when the storks were nesting on the tops of the ruins. The cats who lived there also were cute. I would highly recommend visiting here.

Visited as part of a day tour in Rabat. The entire tour was great, but this was by far the best surprise for me. Chellah is a beautiful example of an old ruined casbah. The outside appears like an ancient Moroccan fortress with massive entryways....More

Should mainly go visit for the outside walls, which are glooming red at sunset. There is a colony of stalks in and out of the compound which is pretty awesome. The ruins are ok, but wouldn’t recommend them in particular.

You dont necessarily need a tour guide. The town is easy to get around simply by walking to most of the spots. In the kasba you will find some "tour guides" that will show you around. They expect a tip so be clear up... More
