This is an old Roman ruin with a beautiful garden. You should wear sunscreen since there is a wide and big area under a really hot sun...

Excellent site containg Roman ruins and subsequent Muslim ruins. Entrance fee 10 dirhams. Not being in a tour group allows time to wander at will among the ruins and bsorb the feel of the place.

This is a cool pleasant garden with walking tracks through avenues of green. There is also a Roman ruin here, partly excavated, partly original and partly (minimally) restored. A pleasant diversion for us on a warm day.

Chellah was amazing to see. Its like revisiting an old palace / fort . It was amazing to see all the ruins and landscape with a lot of historical history. Tour guides available upon entrance to further give background history of this attraction. Definitely recommended.

A great change of a tourist attraction, from the usual medina and kasbahs of Rabat. Come here to see Roman and Moroccan Muslim ruins in a small space. It's easy to walk around and complete your exploration of the venue within an hour. It's not...More

My family and I visited the Chellah as part of a Casablanca - Rabat day tour. After a short walk into a pleasant garden, you can see the Roman ruins and the storks nesting on top. We appreciated the history of the ruins and Islamic...More

You dont necessarily need a tour guide. The town is easy to get around simply by walking to most of the spots. In the kasba you will find some "tour guides" that will show you around. They expect a tip so be clear up... More
