The city of Rabat offers you the richness of its heritage combined with the modernity of a modern capital. Located on the Atlantic coast, in the northwest of Morocco, Rabat is the result of a fruitful dialogue between the Arab-Muslim past and Western modernism. The site includes the "new city", designed and built under the French protectorate from 1912 to the 1930s, including the Royal Residence, colonial administrations, residential and commercial complexes. We will also find old parts of the city that date back to the 12th century.
The "new town" represents one of the largest and most ambitious urban projects of the 10th century in Africa, probably the most complete.
Because of its fascinating heritage combining history and modernity, Rabat is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and the title given to it is revealing: "Rabat, modern capital and historic city: a protected heritage".
Not to miss anything during your vacation in Rabat, some places are a must: the Hassan Tower and the Mohammed V Mausoleum, the Kasbah des Oudayas, the Royal Palace, the Rue des Consuls, the Medina of Rabat, the ruins of Chellah, the Mohammed VI Museum of Modern and Contemporary Arts.
