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.

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
