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

These ruins were definitely worth viewing, especially if you read about it before you see it. (That is assuming you know nothing about the history of Morocco). Viewing allows one to realize how very old this area is and how the Arabs adapted the site...More

Interesting site, and if you can learn about it before you visit it makes it more interesting. There are ruins from different historical periods, dating back to the Romans. But the main attraction, distraction, is the storks who have taken over the place. Supposedly (as...More

The Chellah Necropolis is well worth a visit. It is on the edge of the main part of Rabat, easy to access. It is essentially ruins, some in better repair than others. The storks have taken over which adds to the photogenic quality of the...More

I think Chellah is the best historical landmark of Rabat. You can find the remnants of Merinides, Roman and Phoeinikan trade colonies. Also there is an necropolis area established by Merinides.

As I have mentioned in other reviews, I thought that Rabat was nice without being particularly notable. The highlight of our visit was Chellah, which is a great place to wander round, with Roman ruins and nice gardens. I agree with others that the Storks...More

After several Rabat sights, we went to a Rabat site: the ruins of Chellah. Now, I've seen a good many ruins, so the nesting storks stole the show for me. They were in every coign of vantage, in huge twig and branch nests, tending to...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.
