The place is historical and cultural to the city. It is hugee. And surrounds alot of places. It was very interesting for us to explore. One visit is enough, but be expected to spend a good few hours there as it is quite a vast...More
Our driver dropped us off outside of the kasbah and told us where he'd be waiting for us. We really had no idea what we were doing, so just started walking. The streets were charming and a lot of people wandering around. A gentleman came...More
Wonderful gem hidden away behind high walls, this blue and white section of historical Rabat is a must see. Interesting sights and small streets and alleyways. Please ask people if you can photograph them, this is where they live. Have a look at the huge...More
Very impressive fortress from the outside with large fortified walls and massive gates.
Inside you can wander around the blue painted alleyways to see the houses and then eventually finish in the tranquil and cooling gardens before exiting via another gate.
There are also great...More
The Kasbah is a fortress or castle used to protect the inhabitants. This area has had a varied history and the kasbah has been completely destroyed before being rebuilt in it's current form. The bay below has attractive fishing boats.
From the photographers point of view, this is the place to be in Rabat. Probably the oldest part of old city - 800 years - (except of Chellah of course) you can enter through the main gate upstairs, or through the Andalousian garden. Enormous main...More
Situated in oldest part of town. Entrance in kasba is through Almohads gate called Bab Oudaia. On the end of street is Plateforme du Semaphore with nice view to ocean, river Bou Regreg and Sale town on the opposite side of river.
It really gives you an insight into the way of life of an ancient culture still preserved and functioning in the 21st century!
Gracious people, simple, full of smiles!
If you can, see how they make local bread in the traditional bakery....a scene...More
Very nice grounds to stroll around. My favorite part was the residential neighborhood with the blue and white walls.
There is a cafe to stop at and try some tea or the Almond based pastries. The tea was 10 per glass and the pastries were...More

The golden tulip hotel is nearby. you could walk from there. Within 15 minutes walking distance of the Kasbah there are many hotels. There are also very fine hotels in the Medina across the street from the Kasbah. The streetcar is quite a modern wonder that glides around the city and stops directly outside the Kasbah. However for your convenience there are a glut of taxis that offer multiple levels of service. Some only take 3 or 4 people and are quite inexpensive. The larger ones that tend to be Mercedes are a bit more but are roomier and will iake 1 or two passengers. A driver will also make himself available to you for a longer term if you negotiate a price. Then you can call when you are ready to move. Almost like a personal car service. All this being said, if you have an opportunity to live inside the Kasbah, take it. Just make sure the place will provide all the things you feel are necessary to keep you comfortable during your stay and that there no hidden costs. If yo are living inside the Kasbah you will have a short hilly walk to the gate in order to get transportation to get anywhere else. Markets and provisions will be across the street in the Medina. This spring i was there for a few weeks and found the experience to be thrilling.
