Kasbah of the Udayas
Kasbah of the Udayas Rabat Reviews
Like an Island ! Jan 07, 2011
What makes Rabat different in comparison to other cities is the section of the city called Kasbah des Oudaias.
The Kasbah des Oudaias is a picturesque place with houses and streets that are of a different standard to the rest of the city. All the houses are white and look like they have just been painted with bright blue parapets. The Kasbah des Oudaias provides you with the most amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean and of Sale, Rabat's neighboring city. This part of city is quiet and there are relatively few people walking around the maze of streets. This makes exploring the northern parts of the city a lot more fun.
Located in the vicinity of Kasbah des Oudaia is the oldest mosque in the capital, namely the Kasbah Mosque. The mosque was built in the mid-eleventh century and the beautiful gateway (Bab Oudaia) that leads you to the Kasbah was built in the twelfth century. The mosque was enlarged and renovated later in the eighteenth century.
I recommended to you because is an amazing place which must visit !
