Hotels In Rabat

Morocco?s political capital may lack on the best tourist attractions in the region, but it does compensate with plenty of charm. Rabat is enchanting, evocative and welcoming in its own right - from its tidy, palm-fringed boulevards and clean, central beach, Rabat is a blessed relief from the other larger cities in Morocco. While travelers often set their sights in Fes or Marrakech for their Moroccon holidays, Rabat is a holiday destination should not be missed. This centuries-old city that overlooks the mighty Atlantic Ocean has much to offer for visitors. Read on to discover an array of attractions to visit and why holidays in Rabat is a truly magical experience: Chellah tops the list as one of the most iconic attractions in Rabat. An archaic, fortified city, nestled deep in the heart of Rabat, Chellah is a remains of a pre-Islamic city that was abandoned in 1154 and then rebuilt by Merenid Sultan. Chellah is a wildly atmospheric city, teeming with history and charm. The city is dotted with abandoned buildings and overgrown plants intertwined with immaculately maintained public pathways and colourful flowers and a myriad of enthralling Roman and Islamic ruins. Another attraction is the Hassan Tower. Intended by the Almohads to be the minaret of a majestic mosque, but now, at first sight, the tower appears as if it fell and split in half. Replete with stunningly intricate designs, this tower and the intriguing surroundings is a must-visit on a travel to Rabat. Just opposite the Hassan Tower lies the tomb of King Mohammed V and his two sons. Visitors will be activated by the gold-leaf ceiling and detailed carvings that grace the plain white building.
