The Kasbah Chellah includes Roman ruins c200 BC - 300 AD, as well as early Moroccan, Islamic buildings representing living space, school, and mosque. Story nests high up on many protrusions from this historic site. Our group ended up taking as many pics of storks as they did anything else! This is a walking tour site; best to find some reading material on it to help you know what you're seeing, unless you have a tour guide. Some uneven walking surfaces, but not a problem. Some paths go 'up' as you make your way out. Tile work and mosaics still visible after all these years. Also interesting was the pool with eels, and the local woman who feeds them and the fish. Cats galore.

This necropolis has a nice garden. There are many storks and ibis.
The excavations are excellent. The explanations are in French.

It was hot but the views were so beautiful. The ruins were beautiful. I felt taken back in time. This is a must see. It was only 10 dirhams to enter.
