5 good reasons to go to Rabat

A radiant imperial city
A radiant imperial city
Along with Fes, Meknes and Marrakesh, Rabat is one of Morocco’s four imperial cities. It is also the usual place of residence of the reigning king of Morocco, Mohammed VI, and is home to royal palaces and stunning monuments, the legacy of several Arabic dynasties who employed the best craftspeople in the country.
An ideal holiday climate
An ideal holiday climate
The city’s proximity to the Atlantic Ocean confers on it a laid-back lifestyle like none other in Morocco. The weather is neither too hot nor too cold. It even gets some rain, which explains the presence of the great Mamora forest on its outskirts. The rest of the time, you can enjoy terraces and beaches with fabulous sunset views.
A city rich in flavours
A city rich in flavours
The gastronomy of Rabat bursts with flavours and is a skilled mixture of sweet and savoury. It is also one of the richest in the country thanks to the city’s lush agricultural plains and seaport. Salé, the little town on the other side of the estuary, is another gem that is well worth discovering!
Stroll through the Oriental gardens

Unlike the other imperial cities of Morocco, there is no need to leave the city centre to enjoy the peace and quiet of the palm groves. The city is home to many parks and large, leafy avenues all over the capital where you can go for a relaxing stroll.

To see / do

Culture and history

Hassan Tower

Hassan Tower

An iconic monument of Rabat, Hassan Tower was intended to be the minaret of a gigantic mosque whose construction was never finished. The 200 columns at its foot make the structure particularly photogenic. Next to it, the mausoleum of the previous king never fails to impress.

The Kasbah of the Udayas

The Kasbah of the Udayas

The entrance to this former military base on the coast is an imposing ochre gate worthy of a medieval fortress. Once inside, however, you will discover picturesque little streets lined with white and blue whitewashed houses. This fascinating decor will immediately transport you to another world.

The necropolis of Chellah

The necropolis of Chellah

This is perhaps one of the most romantic sites in Morocco. First a Roman port, then a royal necropolis of the Arabic dynasties, it is now a fortified area thriving with lush vegetation. Between two pretty sultan tombs that have more or less survived the earthquakes, you can admire the old minaret now topped by a stork’s nest.

The medina

Less touristy than those of Marrakesh and Fes, the medina of Rabat is well worth a visit. It was listed as an international heritage site in 2012 and recently benefitted from a major renovation project that preserved the traditional architecture. It is home to skilled craftspeople and typical souks where you can grab a few purchases. 

Go out

Le Dhow

On the bridge of this wooden ship from the Persian Gulf, you will enjoy a stunning view of the Bou Regreg estuary with the Kasbah of the Udayas and the medina in the background. It has to be the best place for dining or having a drink at sunset.

La Maison Arabe

To enjoy a decor worthy of One Thousand and One Nights, go for dinner in this excellent Moroccan gastronomic restaurant decorated in a Hispano-Moorish style. It is located in the prestigious Tour Hassan Hotel, a fabulous palace that is iconic of the city. If you’re lucky, you might even get some musical entertainment!




This is Rabat’s greatest speciality. It is a starter made of flaky pastry stuffed with pigeon and deliciously seasoned with cinnamon, sugar, pepper, raisins, ginger, almonds and orange blossom. Needless to say, it’s an explosion of flavours! In the old port, you can also buy fish pastillas.


This dish is made with lamb simmered in honey until it is coated in a smooth sauce. It is delicately spiced with saffron, cinnamon, cloves and rose buds and sprinkled with toasted almonds to serve.
