Kasbah of the Udayas. Rabat

Tips for your trips. Tourist information. Official websites.

Kasbah of the Oudaias (map). It has narrow streets with cute white and blue houses, the Andalucian Gardens, and the Oudaias Museum housed in a 17th century palace. And a great view of the Atlantic Ocean. It is listed, along with other sites in Rabat, as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Kasbah is the oldest part of *Rabat, literally “Fortified Place”, is the capital city of Morocco. There are many things to do here, as with most Moroccan cities it is enough just to wander around and adventure where something takes your fancy.

The monumental gate of the kasbah, located uphill and overlooking Rabat below, is considered one of most beautiful gates of Almohad and Moroccan architecture. The oldest current structure at the site of the Kasbah is its main mosque, the Jama’ al-‘Atiqa (“Old Mosque”). Dating from Abd al-Mu’min’s construction in 1150, it was largely restored in the 18th century.

Today, the Kasbah remains a popular free tourist attraction within Rabat, offering scenic views of the Plage of Rabat, the Bou Regreg river. It is mostly occupied by a residential neighborhood, known for its distinct blue and white walls.

The southern part of the kasbah includes a former pavilion (Museum of Oudayas, map) or palace residence built by Sultan Moulay Ismail (ruled 1672-1727) at the end of the 17th century. The museum’s collection expanded to include jewellery, musical instruments, ceramics, Qur’ans and manuscripts (some as old as the 12th century), costumes, silks, and carpets, all from different parts of the country. In 2006, following a restoration, it became the National Jewellery Museum, devoted to the history of Moroccan jewellery, along with some other objects.

Public Transport.

Guide to traveling to and getting around in Morocco.

Rabat is well served by train and you can get frequent connections to most places. Marrakesh is a pleasant 4 hr journey, Fez 2½ hr (if you take one of the new express trains, and 3½ hr on other trains) and Casablanca 1 hr.

BUS: CTMSupratours and some smaller companies provide good comfort with reasonable prices. Nearly every city has a central bus station (Gare Routière) where you can buy tickets to travel from region to region (and in some cities certain companies run their own stations – mostly that applies to the operators CTM (Gare Voyage) and partly Supratours).

TRAIN: Trains are generally the best option because of their speed, frequency and comfort ⇒ ONCF. First class train cars are supposed to have working air conditioning (there are no vending machines on ONCF trains, unlike SNCF or TrenItalia trains, and the conductor with a vending cart is not often easy to find)

AIRPORT: Rabat–Salé Airport. Major airlines that serve Morocco would most likely be landing at Casablanca / Mohammed V Int’l Airport

Rabat Kasbah of Udayas | Morocco Walking Tour 4K.

I propose you a walk through this specific area in Rabat which is located close to the beach. It begins from some narrowed streets and finishes with a beautiful sunset scenic. This district is similar to “the blue pearl” or Chefchaouen, located in the northen part of the country.
