Top places to see in Rabat
  • Kasbah of the Udayas

    Kasbahs are barriers that historically were used to shield royalty from attacks. Rabat's clifftop Kasbah of the Udayas was constructed by the Almohads and is over a thousand years old.

  • Mausoleum of Mohammed V

    This marble mausoleum houses the tombs of King Mohammed V and his sons, King Hassan II and Prince Moulay Abadallah. The palace was completed in 1971 and is beautifully decorated in ornate mosaics. It is located in the Yacoub Al Mansour Square, across from the Hassan Tower.

  • Flea Markets

    Students and locals alike enjoy spending their Sunday mornings at Rabat's flea market, the "monti." The market sells many unique souvenirs, and one can never expect what to discover at this fabulous spot. Those who explore the market will find themselves intrigued for hours.
