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

This site in Rabat is well worth a visit and is of considerable historic interest. Getting there by private bus (or car) was tricky towards the middle of the day because local traffic was in log-jam in a nearby intersection so allow time for this...More

Easy to spend an hour or two wondering around the ancient ruins, feeding the hoard of cats, strolling through the gardens or watching the storks who nest on numerous ruin tops and old mosques. Intriguing place full of hundreds of years of history.

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
