This is a gorgeous place. Narrow blue and white streets that lead to an ocean view. The houses are so quaint with their terraces and clothes drying. Definitely climb all the way to the top. It closes at a certain time but if you pay the person they will let you through. The view of the ocean is amazing. They... More

If you visit Rabat, a mix of the contrasts between the ancient and the new, don´t miss the visit to this Kasbah, really ancient. Don´t expect, or intend to buy anything here (fonly ew shops, with the traditional tourist souvenirs..), somewhat filthy and smelly, but don´t miss a lovely Bar located over the wall to the river. Friendly people, just... More

Upon entering we were followed by a local man who led us around the Kasbah. He was well informed and gave a good insight into the fortress but these details could be taken from the internet or guide book without the hefty charge the supposed residents can seek for the privilege!

Set in Morocco’s capital on the mouth of the Bou Regreg river, the Udayas Kasbah (or as it’s also known, Oudayas Kasbah) is one of the country’s most unique sites and in my opinion one of the most beautiful casbah in the country. Originally built in the 12th century and renovated many times since throughout the centuries, it has been... More

Some nice art shops, small contained area. Mostly closed on Fridays. Worth a short wander perhaps. Construction work in progress.

Do not forget to check this place when you visit Rabat. A trip to the Oudaiya is a must! Remember to avoid the local tour guides, try to sightseeing on your own :)

The Kasbah is beautiful and full of life and history. The interior garden is a great place to lounge, take tea or read a novel. There is an adjacent cafe overlooking the Oued Bourereg (river) where you can imagine corsair ships being docked. Great for a Sunday walk, a history lesson, see familiar alleys which were scenes from multiple movies... More

Awesome area to check out! I really enjoyed walking around the area. Just beware of very aggressive vendors, especially with henna. They'll "attack" with the henna and make you pay for it.
