Rabat is not only the Capital of Morocco, but it is also the capital of French culture in Morocco. This is the city where the previous French influence is still mostly alive. Main sights include the Hassan Tower with the Mausoleum of Mohammed V on the same site, as well as the Kasbah of the Udayas and, of course, the Medina of Rabat.
