Location and orientation
Rabat is the capital of Morocco. It is located to the northwest, by the sea. It is one of the largest cities in the country, behind Casablanca. Its proximity to the Spanish coast (a little over 200 km) made it a fortified city as early as the 12th century. This explains its architecture and the layout of the city: the centre is located within the fortress. This does not make the centre a restricted area, quite the contrary. Long and wide avenues lined with palm trees criss-cross the city, which is very spread out.The best districts of Rabat
Rabat is divided into several districts. Those where it is better to stay are located inside the walls of the old town. The Medina district is the one where the historical sites of Rabat can be best appreciated. It is an ideal destination for those who want to visit the buildings of Rabat, soak up its atmosphere and stroll through its streets. Another pleasant district is Hassan, more secluded from the centre but ideal for enjoying the city's gardens.
Travellers and activities
It is a great idea to come to Rabat with children. They will have the opportunity to discover a rich culture and enjoy many entertainments. Thus, it is possible to alternate cultural visits with leisure days. Magic Park, for example, is an amusement park located in the heart of the city, on the side of the Medina. Its big wheel offers a breathtaking view of the city. Another activity: the zoo, near the beaches. It is a pleasant place to walk and discover new animals. To enjoy nature even more, head for the Hahroura Forest, which houses several playgrounds.Rabat for culture lovers
It is difficult to make a choice as the city is full of monuments and sumptuous buildings. Among the most beautiful squares are the one surrounding the Mausoleum of Kings Hassan II and Mohammed V. The Kasbah of the Oudaïa, built in the 12th century, is exceptional. Together with the Chella Necropolis, these are certainly the two most important historical sites - not to be missed. As for museums, Mohammed VI's museum, dedicated to modern art, is an excellent option to discover Moroccan art. And to visit traditional areas, go east. The Souidi boutique, for example, is ideal for admiring local crafts.
The Mohammed VI Museum is the first museum of contemporary art in the country! Opened in 2014, it is a testament to the country's recognition of today's artists.
