The Medina of Rabat

The Medina of Rabat

Are you planning to visit the Medina of Rabat? See our information below!


The Medina of Rabat is a compact medina where you can shop perfectly. Compared to those in Marrakech or Fes, the Medina in Rabat is surprisingly quiet and orderly. According to many, the medina in Rabat is one of the best places in Morocco to pick up a nice souvenir. It is like everywhere in Morocco, the heart of the city. Merchants really sell everything here! Gigantic carcasses of cows or sheep dangle right next to a carpet shop, and meanwhile the smell is obscured by dozens of shops selling dried herbs and spices. A medina is a feast for your senses.

Today’s Rabat was built outside the Medina, making the Medina an impressive piece of history today. But because it is not so busy in Rabat, the old medina is less chaotic and slightly more accessible than in other Moroccan cities. Feel free to get lost, because that’s the only way to discover Morocco in real life.

The Hassan II Mosque is without a doubt the main tourist attraction of Casablanca, but also one of the seven largest mosques in the world.

The Mosque offers space for no less than 25.000 people in the beautiful prayer hall. But there is more to the mosque than just the prayer hall.

Hassan Tower

Hassan Tower

Are you planning to visit the Hassan Tower? See our information below!


The Hassan Tower is a special appearance. The Hassan Tower is a 44-meter-tall minaret that can be seen from much of the city.

The Hassan Tower is the legacy of one of the most prestigious construction projects in Morocco and should become part of the largest mosque in the world. But the special thing about the tower is that it was never really completed. Financial malaise was the reason that construction was halted in the year 1199 and the robust tower, together with about 200 columns, is the only thing that still reminds us of the project.
