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.
Hassan Tower, or Tour Hassan in French, has become a symbol of the city. It's a must-see!
The Medina of Rabat.
A less touristy part of the Medina. Don't just walk the main streets, make sure that you also explore outside of the tourist part.
A cat in the Medina of Rabat. Animals have a strong presence in the Medinas of Morocco.
A man making and selling doughnuts in the Medina.
Mohammed VI Tower will become the tallest building in Africa upon its completion in early 2023. It will be the centerpiece of the new and modern Bouregreg Valley Development Project.
Bab Oudayas, the main gate into the Kasbah of the Udayas.
The center of Rabat is more modern and clean than most other cities in Morocco. Here's near the Rabat Ville Train Station.
Chellah is a medieval fort that traces back to before Roman times. Unfortunately, it was closed during my visit.
The Royal Palace in Rabat. This is the only picture I got of the Palace as photography of Government buildings is not allowed in Morocco and guards will quickly tell you to stop.
