Rabat : Michelin's recommendations
Rabat has preserved traces of its rich past. Visit the Chellah, vestiges of the Roman Sala Colonia and the royal necropolis, shared by storks; admire Hassan Tower, an unfinished minaret attesting to a grandiose project designed by Sultan Yacoub el-Mansour, whose (12C) reign saw a period of unprecedented growth. And naturally you’ll want to explore the kasbah dominating the medina. Rabat, an imperial city, the capital of Morocco and a university town, is peaceful and pleasant, but also a booming place with cultural ambitions.
