We came here on a self guided day trip from Cassablanca (we caught the train and explored). Entry was 10 MAD each & we were greeted by a local wanting to be our guide. We agreed on time limit and payment upfront (100 MAD for...More

This site in Rabat is well worth a visit and is of considerable historic interest. Getting there by private bus (or car) was tricky towards the middle of the day because local traffic was in log-jam in a nearby intersection so allow time for this...More

Easy to spend an hour or two wondering around the ancient ruins, feeding the hoard of cats, strolling through the gardens or watching the storks who nest on numerous ruin tops and old mosques. Intriguing place full of hundreds of years of history.

This was once a major Roman harbour. Several buildings have been excavated including shops, a warehouse, baths, nymphaeum and artisan's workshops. The site became a major base of piracy in the Middle Ages. A mosque was built but was destroyed during the great Lisbon earthquake....More

We taxied out and walked back in to town. Arrived about 10.30a.m. so it was quiet but filling up as we left. We loved the site. Of course the storks added to the visit with their mating clacking ritual.

The Chella is spectacular with beautiful gardens ( filled with clacking storks nesting everywhere) and roman ruins and fortifications from various periods of Moroccan dynasties - Rabat is the modern capital but was edge of Roman Mauretania. It is very peaceful and not touristy.

The first time we visited Rabat, we did not have time to go to Chellah. This time we did and we can recommend it. Really very interesting.

Beautiful spot with ancient history and archeology, very quiet. An ancient Roman ville and an ancient moske and ancient graves in a castle with a big and calm garden. You will see many cats and even more storks.

The gardens are beautiful. It is amazing to see history being covered over several centuries. The stork nests through out the site add a unique element to your visit.

Yes there is a parking area in front of the entrance. It is mainly used by tourist coaches but they don't fill the area.

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
