Region: Rabat
Monuments: The Mausoleum of Mohammed V and the Tour Hasan - Oudaia Kasbah

Rabat is the political, administrative and financial capital of Morocco and its second largest metropolis after Casablanca.

Set beside the Atlantic Ocean, along the banks of the Wadi Bou Regreg, it was occupied by the Romans. The various dynasties that followed left their architectural marks, many a delight to visit today including the Mausoleum of Mohammed V, dating back to the 1100ís, with its museum devoted to the history of the Alaouite dynasty; the Tower of Hassan , built some eight centuries ago, is thought to have been an attempt to outdo the magnificent great mosque of Cordoba across the Mediterranean, in Andalucia , Spain.

Besides these splendid monuments is the fascinating Oudaia Kasbah, probably best known for the blue and white lime-washed buildings which line the narrow streets. Within its walls the Musee de Oudaia, renovated in 1995 with its delightful Andalucian garden, houses a rich collection of Moroccan folk art and crafts. Also well worth a visit is the medina, where Christian prisoners were once sold as slaves, particularly its carpet market held every Thursday morning.
