We visited in the morning and the light was beautiful. The outside is fully restored so pretty upon approach and a nice garden. Inside the old roman ruins and roman road are compelling, and the 13-14th Century tombs and ruins with some mosaics (and more...More

A city that traces its origins to the Carthaginian and Phoenicians. You can walk around the ruins and imagine what it was like. They have beautiful trees and vegetation’s throughout. A wonderful place to take a lot of pictures. Interestedly enough, there are over 70...More

We visited here on our first full day in Morocco. It was delightful. Very scenic and offers the chance for many excellent photo opps. I'd love to return.

We arrived at Chellah in the afternoon when the golden sunlight danced on the Roman ruins. Our guide met us inside the ancient walled citadel and gave an interesting commentary as we passed by remains of a holy necropolis and complex including mosque, minaret, and...More

A very good stay in this Chellah. All kind of plants are growing inside. Very nice view of the Roman and Arabic “houses”. A lot of birds.

We arrived at this place to see the French dugout for Roman treasure but place is the burial ground. There is a little water pool believed to be the wishing Well. Plantation around the place was being well maintained.

A nice place to visit in the afternoon - sunset or morning. Amazing for photos and opportunity to see storks in the upper parts of the walls of the ruins. Beautiful site, and one of the must see places in Rabat.

Highly recommended collection of Roman ruins, enhanced by numerous stork nests and a lot of cats. Well worth visiting.

Small site with Roman and Berber remains in a walled enclosure. Worth a visit for the sense of layered history but not overly well maintained and the remains are of limited visual interest. Focus tends to be on the many storks that nest in the...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
