Definitely a must-see in Rabat. The entrance fee is 10 Dirhams, which is reasonable for this attraction. At the entrance, you are greeted by a colossal ancient door. Inside, there are splendid gardens and ruins from the Romans, as well as ruins of an ancient...More

For someone who is fond of Roman ruins, this was an unexpected treat. In addition the gardens were a delight. Look out for the storks who are now the residents of the former necropolis, like sentinels guarding the lost souls.

It was a good visit, though I wish I read either Arabic or French to be able to understand the signage of the place. Beautiful garden and outlook views! I am a bit thrilled to see the historical ruins and the birds gliding over them.

An interesting archaeological site and gardens to wander about for an hour or two. The minaret which has been taken over by storks is perhaps the central attraction

Very nice monument with exotic garden and remarkable landscape. Some local people offer you to guide inside the site.

We enjoyed walking around the ruins but weren’t blown away. I’d recommend it if in the area. We spent about 40 mins looking around before moving on. The entrance fee was fair.

I have to say that the walk to the Cellah from the medina is a constant uphill and we actually found it quite exhausting. This ate into the experience a little as we were tired by the time we arrived. Entry price is 10dh per...More

Yes there is a parking area in front of the entrance. It is mainly used by tourist coaches but they don't fill the area.

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
