Departure to Rabat via the highway. Upon arrival you will be joined by your local guide before starting the visit. The visit will start at Chellah or Sala Colonia which is a necropolis and complex of ancient Roman Mauritania Tingitana and medieval ruins at the outskirts of Rabat; it is the most ancient human settlement on the mouth of the Bouregreg River. Next you have the chance to see the Hassan Tower which is a minaret of an incomplete mosque, this tower was intended to be the largest minaret in the world along with its mosque but the work stopped just after the death of Yaakub Al Mansour. Other wonderful places to visit are:
- Mohammed V mausoleum: is a historical building located on the opposite side of Yaakub Al Mansour esplanade. It contains the tombs of the Moroccan king Mohammed V and his two sons, late King Hassan II and Prince Abdallah. The building is considered a masterpiece of modern Alaouite dynasty architecture, with its white silhouette, topped by a typical green tiled roof, green being the color of Islam. A reader of the Koran is often present, having his assigned seat. Its construction was completed in 1971. Hassan II was buried there following his death in 1999.
- Ouddayas Kasbah: is a Kasbah at the mouth of the Bouregreg River, it was built in the twelfth century by the Almohads who called it “Al Mahdia” in reference to their leader Al Mahdi Ben Tumurt. Originally this Kasbah was a Ribat (a military defense). And later the Kasbah gave its name to the whole city. Kasbah Ouddayas is a city within a city, a little city apart in Rabat. In 2012 it was inscribed on the list of World Heritage of UNESCO as a cultural asset along with other sites in the city.
Optional Lunch. Your tour guide will advise you some good restaurants in the city. Free afternoon, take some time to wander the narrow streets of the old Medina at your own pace before to head back to Casablanca.
